Graduate Minor in Creativity and Innovation

About the Graduate Minor

The Creativity & Innovation graduate minor provides the fundamentals of creative problem-solving content and competencies indicative of creative leaders. This graduate minor provides students with the content knowledge of what creativity is and is not, and the tools and skills to identify and enhance their creative strengths and abilities, while fostering their ability to apply creativity in their personal lives and in a leadership role within the workplace.

In today's world of increasing complexity, change, and competition, the ability of all employees within an organization to generate new ideas and present those innovations to key decision makers is now essential for any successful organization. Creativity is multidisciplinary – it is in all professional fields from chemistry to engineering, from education to computer science, and from sociology to business. The graduate minor in Creativity & Innovation provides managers and employees with the awareness and creativity skills that will distinguish managers who maintain the status quo from leaders who inspire a new direction or vision.
