Bigger thinking for a better world.
Whether you’re a profit-based business or a mission-driven organization, innovation is not a luxury—it’s a matter of survival. It’s the only path leading you past your competition. It’s your gateway to sustained growth. It’s insurance against irrelevance.
Your organization, right at this very moment, is brimming with bright ideas and novel approaches for processes, products, and services. The bold thinking that will fuel your future growth already lies inside your people, inside your teams, like so many dots waiting to be connected.
But how do you harness the power of many individual ideas to transform the whole? Answering that question is what drives the Innovation Academy at the Notre Dame Mendoza College of Business. We deliver premier innovation education to drive growth, create differentiation, break through barriers that stifle creativity, and build sustained momentum for an exciting future and a better world.

What Our Participants Say
I joined the Certified Innovation Mentor™ program shortly after moving into a new role focused on driving innovation in several key markets. Looking back, I cannot imagine doing this new job without the benefit of the program. It gave me many practical, hands-on techniques and skills that I could apply as our team worked to execute new products and services.
Through CIMp, I got exposure to different vendors, techniques, and methodologies related to innovation that would have been very difficult to find on my own.
Embedding innovation into our culture has been critical to our success, and partnering with Notre Dame on this effort has been absolutely invaluable.
