Why Our Partners are On Board

Phil DallCreative Director, Design Bridge"The Professional Competency Model (PCM) is a great step forward in equipping learners for the industry. The breadth and modular nature of the course do a great job of providing a deep understanding across many topics within the ever-changing industry landscape."

Thomas MouritzenManaging Director, Accentures Interactive, ASEAN"The Professional Competency Model is a major step in the right direction to equip learners with the right skills and mindset to perform and navigate the evolving economic landscape.

The curriculum is well-considered. It strikes a good balance between equipping learners with digital skills and building strong fundamentals in design and aesthetics. The ability and readiness to adapt and collaborate across multi-function disciplines is crucial to their success in their career. Getting industry partners to be involved in co-developing the training materials would bring benefit to both learners and the industry."

Benjamin KeeCreative Director, Anomalyst Studio"This is a bold initiative to overhaul the conventional approach to education. It moves away from teaching subjects in silos to a solution-based model that mirrors the seamless synthesis of interdisciplinary work practice of the industry, and a real-world reflection of business focus and creative expressions.

The contemporary outlook of the curriculum covers a good breadth of design for communication through a wide range of creative disciplines that allows graduates to pursue the wider gamut of creative roles across different industries."
