Press-release: Parsons becomes first fashion school to use Peaqs software for entrepreneurship

“It’s a cross between Shark Tank and Kickstarter,” explains Keanan Duffty, Program Director of Masters in Fashion Management at Parsons School of Design.

Designed for entrepreneurship, project development, marketing and business planning, Peaqs is a high level learning game platform that combines a project development process with a virtual stock market engine for real-time valuation and peer feedback. Designed in Denmark, and released in late 2018, it quickly found its way to Copenhagen Business School and Denmark Technical University ,and in 2019 was a finalist at the Nordic Edtech Awards. It is currently live in 7 countries on 3 continents and expanding across new subjects and curricula that stand to benefit from its unique approach to driving the learning process. Duffty is proud that theirs is the first fashion education program to feature the software and, while much has been said about the drawbacks of online learning during the pandemic, the MPS Fashion Management team were already on the lookout for ways to enhance the student online learning experience prior to Covid. Duffty explains to FashionUnited why Peaqs was the ideal platform partner for his entrepreneurship-focused class during its five-week intensive course this fall.
