"by Jennifer Beale: SCAD Named One Of World's Best By BusinessWeek

The Savannah College of Art and Design, the most comprehensive art and design university in the world, has been recognized globally by BusinessWeek as one of the "World's Best Design Schools" for its design management program. The university was listed alphabetically as one of the top 30 design schools in the world, all of which are noted for "present[ing] a snapshot of the nascent movement to teach design thinking and innovation to a new generation of global corporate leaders."

"We are honored to receive this recognition, which acknowledges the talent, creativity and ingenuity of our students and faculty," said Victor Ermoli, dean of the SCAD School of Design. "Driving innovation, creating new industry and communicating the role of design and business are key components in creating new businesses, developing new products and stimulating the investor economy. Upon graduation, our students are fully prepared to contribute in these meaningful ways."

The SCAD design management curriculum focuses on interdisciplinary partnership and the integration of design thinking in all levels of strategy, planning and management. SCAD students take courses in design, management and business and work in collaborative, interdisciplinary teams. Graduates have an understanding of the essential role of creativity as a strategic advantage in business.

The SCAD School of Design, which houses the design management program, offers the most comprehensive programs in design education, encouraging creative thinking in interdisciplinary, collaborative courses. Fostering innovation and facilitating industry relationships, the school prepares professional, adaptable thinkers who will lead in the creation of a positive future. The SCAD industrial design department is among the most technologically advanced and forward thinking programs in the world, developing highly motivated, visionary students of design who create, articulate and communicate innovative solutions to contemporary issues in the global marketplace."

LOL..you got it Jean, SHAGGING is alive and well in coastal Gerogia. (for those of you that don't know - Shag is described as a Southern tradition of style and grace...a dance craze phenomenon invented decades ago by local teens all along the Carolina Coastline.)
