Business schools produce standardised graduates failing to appreciate innovaton and creatvity

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Education is about inspiring minds, developing individuals who are naturally curious about their world and who possess the capacity to actively engage in solving complex global issues. Our world is rapidly changing and as a result employers are increasingly demanding an integrated perspective. Such a view requires an innovative skill set amongst graduates that includes sense-making, novel and adaptive thinking, transdisciplinarity, reflective and critical thought and a creative design mindset (Davies, Fidler & Gorbis, 2011). This results in a unique learning journey, where one size certainly does not fit all. A creative approach to education is needed.
