The higher education system, particularly management education institutions (MEIs), is recognized as a significant source of creative talent for organizations. Organizations have to carefully select the necessary talent from MEIs. In this light, MEIs would seek to maximize their students' creativity competencies. This exploratory research study identifies the significant boosters of creativity-competencies employing a sample survey among 269 student-respondents on the verge of completing their MBA programmes. The relationships between the identified boosters were modelled using structural equation modelling. The study found that adaptive-thinking and teamwork serve as the foundation for various other competencies, eventually fostering creativity competencies among the MBA students. The study restricts the assessment of creativity competencies concerning selected MBA institutions. The model created will serve as the basis for developing creativity-competencies in management education. This study is new to examine the relationship among the individual competencies and traits boosting the creativity competencies and test the model in MEIs.
