Prof. Manika Walia
Dean, School of Creativity

The innate nature of humans is to be creative. In the era of technology, machines will become the workforce. One domain that will always need human visioning and execution is creativity. We help our students to realize their creative nature and utilize it for a professional and societal impact.

School of Creativity graduate and postgraduate programs immerse students in focused training, interdisciplinary inquiry, and practice-based collaborative learning.

Here creators and scholars master established art and design fields and advance emerging ones in an education that reflects students’ passions, challenges them academically, and prepares them to create a more just, more beautiful, and better-designed world.




The 4-year Bachelor of Design programme is designed to develop values, attitudes, sensorial skills and aesthetic sensitivity amongst students. It enables students to the fundamentals of design and orients students to thinking of design as a creative problem-solving process. 




The 2-year Master of Design programme combines a user-centered, method-based approach with management education making it ideal for professionals who aspire to lead collaborative, interdisciplinary innovation initiatives within global organizations.
