The NIT Northern Institute of Technology Management and the Miami Ad School Europe, The International Institute of Creative Innovations, have sealed their official cooperation in a "Memorandum of Understanding". The plans include to open individual courses, as well as to develop common courses. The aim is to promote exchange and mutual learning between students from different disciplines, such as engineering, management and creative technology.
International Creative Minds meet International Engineers
The NIT combines technological and entrepreneurial know-how. In its "Technology Management" (MA/MBA) and further education courses, the NIT focuses on project-based learning and teaches, among other things, innovation methods such as Design Thinking. Miami Ad School Europe is a hot spot for creativity and innovation, with the most awards in the creative and innovation industry worldwide. Art directors, communication designers, copywriters, digital designers and creative technologists are trained in an international network. NIT Managing Director Verena Fritzsche wants to use synergies and hopes for an inspiring exchange: "We are united by an understanding for a new way of learning: autonomous, practice-oriented, international and flexible. At the same time, our students can learn a lot from each other. Together we can create great innovations."
"Industry is looking for innovative minds. Young, passionate people who are familiar with the latest technology and hungry to look to the future - because technologies are evolving every day. At the same time, they should be able to use their technical skills creatively and imaginatively on the job," explains Ina Behrendt, Managing Director Digital at Miami Ad School Europe. "As the 'International Institute of Creative Innovations', we are training exactly these employees of the future with our new program," explains Niklas Frings-Rupp, who founded the school 15 years ago. The concept of the two-year course and training is based on three pillars: understanding of technology, design/product, and human needs. Accordingly, the content is also divided into areas such as coding, digital design or management, which is why we are particularly pleased that NIT supports and wonderfully complements us in the areas of design thinking and data science/modeling, as well as machine learning".
NIT and Miami Ad School Europe will also benefit from each other in the area of continuing education by offering events together. They will cooperate and strengthen their potential, particularly in the areas of design thinking and data science/modeling, as well as machine learning and innovation challenges.
