In a world with rapidly changing technology, the fear of job elimination increases and humans seek a way to stand out against technology. Durable skills are the interpersonal skills that can make humans indispensable and a key asset to the workforce. While recruiters seek candidates with durable skills, these skills aren't always taught in the classroom due to being challenging to measure. So, what is the best way to select and prepare learners with the right skill set industry is seeking and what jobs are in demand for durable skills? Join this webinar to learn how business schools need to be thinking about looking at these skills right from admissions and preparing their learners all the way to graduation, and hear the industry perspective on why durable skills are highly sought after.
