Creative people are problem-solvers

University graduates with an art and design background tend to think outside the box. They explore ideas outside of the norm, challenge the status quo, and search for new ways of creating or doing things. This is what makes them so good at solving problems.

By identifying opportunities where conventional methods have failed, artists and visionaries help move businesses forward. This applies to just about every industry, even non-creative fields such as accounting and finance, business management, IT and technology, and many others.

Creativity fosters happiness

Employers are taking notice of mental wellbeing and finding ways to improve company culture. Not only does this improve productivity, but it helps them attract and retain top talent. By on-boarding creatives such as artists and designers, they can make their workplace a happier place for all.

According to the World Economic Forum, creativity is the third most important skill for Industry 4.0, so this really highlights the importance of creativity at work. Theres never been a better time to develop your art and design skills at university.
