Business executives consider it the most essential characteristic of leadership in the 21st Century. Psychologists consider it the highest form of self-actualization. Today educators consider it the highest expressions of learning. While creativity may once have been considered a pleasant novelty, today creative problem solving is a 21st century survival skill.

The need for creative thinking & complex problem solving is high and the demand for creativity professionals is increasing. CAI’s graduate program in Creativity and Change Leadership might be the right fit to respond to that need.
