Today creativity is considered by educators to be the highest expression of learning. Also, psychologists suggest it as the highest form of self-realization. To the same extent, the business sector considers creativity as one of the most important thinking skills of leadership in the 21st century. Due to the above, and for a large number of papers and research on the importance of creativity for professional success, UNAB has stablished an strategic alliance with the International Center for Studies in Creativity (ICSC) of Buffalo State, one of the most important centers worldwide with more than 50 years of study in the science of creativity.
The university has the Creativity Course in all postgraduate programs to update their curriculum with the subject called Creative Problem Solution, which allows our students to develop their creative potential, face challenges, set goals and solve problems. In other words, this course allows students to learn the basics of the Creative Problem Solution (CPS) Methodology aimed to achieve personal and career goals. The course is certified by the International Center for Studies in Creativity (ICSC) of Buffalo State and is also offered to the external sector as an extension course.
UNAB has the Creativity Course that is included in the third semester of all the undergraduate programs. This course provides an exciting, revealing and completely useful research on what it takes to live an extraordinary creative life. Teachers benefit with what is needed to be successful in their professional development, while students get meaningful learning, they gain purpose and improve their relationship with themselves and others. So that, they learn how to face problems in their lives, "design" their own lives creatively. Students learn life skills by applying the Creative Problem Solution methodology.
