AbstractWith changing patterns of accountability in higher education, universities are becoming increasingly focused on performing well against a growing number of metrics. Many used as proxy measures to indicate value of educational experience, amongst the most common and perhaps most notable are those relating to graduate career destinations. Universities have never been more focused on ensuring that graduates are ‘employable’. In the midst of the fourth industrial revolution, numerous studies highlight the potential significance and value of creativity, problem-solving and critical thinking, for successful navigation of the complexities of the future. Consequently, these capacities are becoming more significant in determining graduate career development and educational strategy in higher education. This chapter presents a synthesis of related fields of research to construct an outline framework for the development of organizational creativity and creative graduates concluding that there are aspects of current pedagogical practice capable of worthwhile reform.
