Global Innovation Design Network

Global Innovation Design (GID) Program

The Global Innovation Design (GID) program is unparalleled in the world, offering a trans-national design education that bridges three major centers of design, culture and industry: Graduate School of Media Design, Keio University (KMD) in Tokyo/Yokohama, Imperial College and Royal College of Art (RCA) in London, and Pratt Institute (Pratt) in New York. These centers are international leaders in creativity and innovation, with complementary expertise in art, design, engineering, technology, and business. A select group of GID students will earn Master's degrees while studying at and traveling between all three program centers. This is not just a study abroad experience, but a multi-institution model for higher education in the 21st century. Students gain a unique perspective by living and studying on three different continents, immersed in three different cultures, amidst three of the largest economies in the world. GID educates global design leaders ― "creative catalysts" for positive change in a globalized society.
