Abstract
Education has been an important service industry for many countries due to its economic contributions and roles in developing human capital. Deriving from preceding assertion, nations across the world have spent significant amount of their financial resources in the sector. Unfortunately, research in education have been deemed to be lacking which may result in ill-advised decisions made by governments including when determining which field of higher education to focus. This study answers such uncertainty by compiling and presenting data from various resources to support the proposition that arts and design should be the focal point to assist creative industry which is the emerging and promising powerhouse of Indonesian economy
