Today, in an era of information overload, digital intervention is reshaping the workforce and data is creating a more inclusive, agile and fair workplace. Every employer places a premium on competencies and skills, which includes both technical abilities and cognitive skills. How are business schools adapting to the changing needs and helping build careers? Dr Arindam Banerjee (Associate Professor and Deputy Director – Global MBA & Master of Global Business, SP Jain) shares his insights in an article published on Pagalguy, an Indian education website.
“Business schools have responded to these growing needs through various placement readiness programs (PRP). Business schools are placing more focus on holistic learning that includes both behavioural and technical skills and interview preparedness through sustainable skill development and habit formation,” writes Dr Arindam Banerjee.
He also highlights the need to foster a global mindset in an increasingly international world. “Students with international experience are more likely to be employed within six months of graduation than those without, and are much more likely to have international elements to their work.”
