Drexel University Online, a leader in online degree programs, has increased its online degree offerings by launching the new Master of Science in Creativity and Innovation from the Goodwin College: School of Technology and Professional Studies.
This new master’s program is designed to develop student’s abilities to recognize problematic situations within various settings (e.g., corporate, educational, military, etc.), and generate a sufficient number of plausible, creative and innovative solutions to address them.
A recent IBM study, based on face-to-face conversations with more than 1,500 chief executive officers worldwide, identified creativity as the most important leadership quality of the future (IBM Institute for Business Value, 2010). A number of companies including Intuit, Pepsi, BF Goodrich, Ford Motor Company, Disney, Time Warner, and K-Mart have positions such as “Vice President for Innovation” or “chief creativity officer.” The diversity of these companies reflects the multidisciplinary nature of this discipline and allows for a variety of career options for graduates of the Master of Science in Creativity and Innovation.
Drexel University is headquarters to the American Creativity Association (ACA), affording students access to some of the world’s most prominent thinkers, researchers, and writers in the field of creativity and innovation. Moreover, the Drexel/Torrance Center for Creativity and Innovation, directed by Dr. Fredricka Reisman, is housed directly in the Goodwin College.
“Through the process of creative thought, the Center’s work enhances an individual's ability to imagine new ideas by learning to envision that which cannot immediately be seen.” said Dr. Reisman.
Applications for Drexel’s online MS in Creativity and Innovation are now being accepted for the fall term. For more information about this online program, visit Drexel’s online degree website, e-mail info(at)drexel(dot)com or call (877) 215-0009.
