This paper proposes a new educational framework for imparting integrative thinking. While literature discusses the innate design capabilities and benefits of design thinking competencies for businesses there is little outside of higher education discussing how to learn or be trained in design thinking skills and practices (Howard 2012; Melles 2010) or what is considered effective training practices. Can creativity be taught? What are the various styles of design education and how do they differ? What are the outcomes of various types of design education for business? How can the development of a design education framework help organizations to navigate and implement integrative thinking programs in an effective and sustainable way? The presented framework helps to categorize (discuss) different types of design and integrative education modes by analyzing multiple elements of the various pedagogical delivery systems. This framework facilitates to define academic standards and learning
