"Today's college students have a native technological understanding unlike any generation before, paired with an abiding passion for arts and culture. These traits, when nurtured, let them create in ways that have never been possible until now: building new and different products and technologies, transforming the culture economy and re-envisioning our world. 

The Academy was created for this student. With state-of-the-art facilities and a dedicated faculty, the program encourages students to build a creative language, explore the global context of their work and learn the tools that enable them to execute their vision. Armed with a broad knowledge base and supported by a core of committed teachers and professional mentors, Academy graduates will be equipped with a leadership perspective that is unparalleled in an undergraduate degree and applicable to virtually any industry, empowering them to create and disrupt in ways that we cannot even imagine."
