The Skillset of the Future
Picture could not be loaded
In the last 20 to 30 years, the world has changed tremendously. When people in their 20s look at people in their 60s that climbed their corporate ladders successfully, chances are that these paths will not be applicable to them. In our modern, dynamic business world, people’s skills have to be T-shaped rather than I-shaped. Globalization and digitization have mixed up industries and heavily increased the speed at which we innovate. No matter what you specialize in or what you study - if you are looking for career success, it will not be enough. You will have to continue learning as you climb the corporate ladder. Certificates in areas such as Security, Project Management, Digital Transformation, Programming, Law or Coaching are becoming a must rather than a plus to be able to assume senior positions in larger companies.

This development also changes the way universities understand their purpose. While 30 years ago, their purpose was to shape young minds and otherwise
  fully focus on academia, they now have to become a lot more practice-oriented and aim for the T-shape. Great universities have to make sure they can accompany their students beyond their first academic degree, which is why the EBS University has launched a new faculty, the EBS Executive School, which offers 40 certificate programs in various areas.

While having T-shaped skills at the beginning of your career matters the most, later on, you will have to become “comb-shaped”. The higher the position you’re aiming for, the more different areas you will require advanced expertise in. Chances are, five years from now, when it comes to large companies, it will be unthinkable for an account manager in investment banking not to be able to code or for an HR manager not to have any advanced coaching education.

The next-generation CEOs will not only have to be familiar with their own industries, but all the industries ever-so-slightly connected to them. They will have to be great strategists, leaders, understand marketing, sales, and the legal side of everything, be able to maximize their employees’ efficiency through coaching, manage change while at the same time being able to innovate and understand new technology trends, such as artificial intelligence, in detail.

While degrees from reputable universities and certificate programs will have a positive impact on your careers, it is not the piece of paper you bring with you that you are hired for. It’s your skills, determination and mindset that you bring to the table.
