Empirical findings are reported regarding an acquired new mindset of innovative thinking and behaviour by students who have participated in a dual higher education concept which integrates academic studies and workplace training. Work Based Learning (WBL) innovation indicators relevant to international commerce degree students are reviewed and an approach is presented that can be used to provide rigorous analysis of innovation activity by students participating in WBL. The research method involved a qualitative methodology to formulate a framework for a tentative generic WBL innovation model. Innovation indicators useful to the three-way partnership of employer, university teacher and student are identified.
