In an interview with The Aspen Institute, assistant Professor of Management Oscar Jerome Stewart, Ph.D., details his innovative method of encouraging students to approach business problems using art and creativity.

Stewart shares,

Creativity in our pedagogy, as business faculty in particular, is a tool to rethink business education. One of the more visible ways that I have tried to awaken students’ creativity in my teaching is using various art projects. The process of creating works of art allows students to critically reflect on business practices and concepts.

Last year, Dr. Stewart was recognized with the Ideas Worth Teaching Award by The Aspen Institute for his “Seminar in Business and Society.”
