As the digital economy continues to evolve, business and government leaders are relying on education systems to produce graduates that can thrive in the workplace of the future, with technical AI knowledge being some of the most sought-after skills of all. However, as demand for greater digital literacy and technical skills among graduates grows, businesses are struggling to meet their needs. In Southeast Asia alone, nearly 70 percent of tech hiring managers say it takes more than three months to fill an open tech position, with only a small number of applicants possessing the necessary skills to secure a job offer.
In this session, we'll explore how Higher Education can foster the creative skills, along with the technical know-how, needed to prepare students for the workforce of the future. We’ll be discussing the best approach to helping graduates develop a full portfolio of skills for the future workplace, touching not only on the need for training in science, technology, engineering and maths, but also the importance of creative thinking and imagination in driving innovation.
