Students working together to build skills for tomorrow

Leaders are not ready for tomorrow [WISE]

Posted Aug 07, 2014 by Hult News

The working world today is not the same as it was 20 years ago. It is not even the same as it was 5 years ago. “Today, more than ever, the only constant is change” as says Yasar Jarrar said in his article on Education for Employment. As every aspect of the world around us changes and adapts to future needs, future leaders need to be learning the knowledge and skills for tomorrow, as they study today.

More and more students are graduating from all levels of universities, but we see one constant across the board; students aren’t equipped with the skills they need for today’s working world, let alone tomorrow’s. But who is at fault? The schools and universities? The employers? Or the students themselves?

Hult Professor and Partner of Bain & Company in the UAE, Yasar Jarrar, discusses his views on where things went wrong and how we can get back on track in “Education for Employment: Who Should Equip Learners for the Job Market?” in WISE.
