Minor content

This minor is great for students who are willing to flex their creative muscle in challenging circumstances and design an experience for themselves that will help make the transition into the professional world. The minor is creative but also challenges students to communicate their creativity and negotiate between their and the client’s ideas. The project will change every week as ideas develop or are ditched. Students learn to be agile, responsive and able to pick up an idea and enhance it.   

Students have to collaborate with local clients coming from different sectors: education, commerce, non‐profit and social enterprises. The work towards weekly client meetings while planning, preparing their event in and around Bangkok will be an important element of the work. Students who seek to compete in a challenging market environment with thousands of events organized each year will enjoy this minor. Visits to local venues and meeting with industry experts who host workshops and/or lectures will also be part of this program.
