Design, Innovation and Creativity led Entrepreneurship (DICE) is an ecosystem of education providers based in the Mumbai area, seeking partners to enhance the international experience and opportunities of students.

DICE members include higher education colleges focusing on Design, Communication, Management, Entrepreneurship and Hospitality plus a network of feeder high schools. Kala Anand, Director, Konnect Konsultants, coordinated a visit of DICE delegates to selected Australian institutions in April 2019 to explore opportunities for collaboration.

The objective of the delegation is to empower Indian educationalists to herald innovation and leadership in the knowledge economy of the 21st Century.

During their visit to Griffith University on 5 April, Professor Michelle Barker and Dr Dhara Shah presented their project addressing the needs of women entrepreneurs in India and other research to explore opportunities for future collaboration.

In 2016, DICE launched the International School of Management Excellence (ISME) to develop management programs with an entrepreneurial focus. ISME’s aim is to inculcate new age skills in students, including social intelligence, novel and adaptive thinking, cross-cultural competency, computational thinking, trans-disciplinarily and a design mindset.
