STUDENTS AND ALUMNI HAVE GREAT THINGS TO SAY ABOUT THE PROGRAM

  • Carian

    Studying Creativity and Change Leadership gives me the knowledge, skills and attitudes to provide healthy problem solving environments. Co-creative environments in which people can flourish, everyone can join equally, confidence and joy in creating grow, and beautiful outcomes naturally follows.

    I am becoming a “creative environmentalist”. You too?

    Creativity is a very interesting and intriguing domain. There are so many angles to this, so much to unveil, that many myths to tear down, so many theories to be interpreted.

    Going through this with a cohort of people as passionate about creativity as I am, is a fun experience, creating friendships for life. This MSc is by far my richest stretch of education so far.

    I loved the balance between theory and practice, you need both when you go out there in the business world. Practice grounded in theory allows you to be confident in front of a group, and a client, and to anchor the activities and techniques you use into solid knowledge.

    My life has flourished in all respects: when you learn to turn challenges into opportunities, you start looking at the world and at other people in a new way, increasing your success and personal fulfillment in life.

    The program provided me with very important life skills of creativity that can be applied in any situation where new thinking and new perspectives are relevant, and that is almost anywhere.

    The program also taught me that “failure” is also part of the creative process as it helps you to figure out what works and what does not.
