Innovation

There is a simple fact . . . we have no way to know what the professional world will be like for the Chase graduate in five, ten, or fifteen years.

in the Future

The professional landscape will be completely different. The world is changing at an incredible rate, which creates a blend of uncertainty and excitement.

Our Innovation Spaces

A space for Makers

We’ve integrated innovation and design thinking into our traditional curriculum – and created three high and low-tech design labs on campus, providing students the knowledge and space to chart their own course in terms of their approach to a project and the outcome they produce.

 

Professional Opinions

For the past five years, GE has conducted international opinion surveys of senior business executives who manage their firm’s innovation strategy.

In 2011, 95% of respondents believed innovation to be the main lever for a more competitive national economy.

By 2013, 3,000 executives in 25 countries were participating – making it the largest global survey of business executives dedicated to innovation.

Currently, two-thirds of executives identify disruptive innovation - the process of developing new products or services to replace existing technologies and gain a competitive advantage – as essential to success.

Teaching a Process

Inside three educational adventure spaces on campus, design thinking – a structured approach to generating and developing ideas - is the focus. Teachers are not leading students to predetermined lesson outcomes. Instead, they are asking their students to imagine, to explore, to fail, to iterate and to reimagine until the desired outcome is reached.

Skills for Life

Regardless of what the future will look like when Chase students graduate from college, we know the marketplace will reward creative problem solvers. Chase's educational program and innovation challenges create the right conditions for generating solutions. It is the development of not only this skill, but this mindset that will be essential in the world that lies ahead.
