An Education that Complements Evolving Technology
Technology is reconfiguring the employment landscape, and these changes will continue to accelerate in the years to come. To adapt and thrive, both employers and employees must cultivate skills and knowledge that complement emerging technologies, so that they can contribute effectively to the teams, organizations, and jobs of the future.
