Talent Development and Creativity

How do athletes and musicians develop their talent? How can teachers stimulate children's talents and creativity in the classroom? And how can companies encourage creativity among their employees?

In any achievement domain, there is an increasing focus on the development, selection, and promotion of talent and creativity. In this unique, internationally-oriented Master's programme you will develop the expertise to enable you to select, develop, and nurture talent and creativity in individuals and organisations across achievement domains.  You will learn about the theoretical approaches to talent development and creativity, and you will be in contact with different organisations in the worlds of sport, business and education so you can learn about their policies on encouraging talent and creativity. As part of your MSc thesis you will carry out a research project, possibly combined with an internship, to investigate the development of talent and/or creativity in the achievement domain that interests you most.
