The world of work has changed. It’s time for education to do the same.
It used to be that you studied for 4 years and then worked at the same company for 40 more. Nowadays, reality is very different.
McKinsey estimates that trends like remote work, e-commerce, and continuing automation could mean more than 100 million workers might need to find a different occupation by 2030. This is our new reality.
