Schools and employers rank a degree in the arts among the most significant indicator of a job candidate’s creativity and innovation skills.
In a survey of college educated, full-time employees, ages 25+, 85 percent agreed that creative thinking is critical for problem solving in their career. 71 say creative thinking should be taught as a course, like math and science. And, while 78 percent stated that creativity is very important to their career, only 57 percent thought so when they were in college.
