As we move towards a smaller, more interconnected world, it is becoming ever clearer that in order to meet the top priority of global industries and economies, countries have to invest in the quality of their workers. The only way to nurture a sophisticated global generation is to do so from the ground up: through education.
With an increasingly competitive global education sector and a greater focus on individual-based development, the days of ‘mass production’ teaching techniques such as rote learning and blind copying are growing more and more numbered. The development of critical thinking, reasoning and communication skills in students – abilities that will shape their character for life – is more important in the long-term goal of producing an intelligent workforce than gearing lessons purely towards achieving a pass grade in the next examination.
In reflection of this, the best universities in the world are adopting a global perspective to best prepare their students for the world business stage.
