Your current programs are preparing students with the knowledge and technical skills they need to begin their career. But how well are you developing essential "soft skills" to help them lead and collaborate with others?
Today’s employers are reporting a massive career skills gap that is on track to grow. Innovation and technology are demanding a workforce that demonstrates unprecedented emotional intelligence, initiative, collaboration skills, and more. Even with the strongest academic preparation, recent graduates are lacking the leadership and communication skills required to thrive in today’s workplace.
Today’s students need more than academic coursework; they need to develop the skills essential to success in the workplace, including initiative, communication, time management, collaboration, and creativity.
