With the 21st century being all about new technologies led by artificial intelligence and data analytics, how can one stay current and relevant to employers? Nitish Jain (President, SP Jain School of Global Management) highlights the need for one to upskill and reskill in an article for BW Education, a leading education publication.
“The internet has evolved to become a one-stop source of information. Real-time and at no cost! Hence, companies have stopped looking for knowledgeable people. The game has shifted to skills and competencies,” says Mr Jain.
As AI eats more jobs, he shares that people need to skill up and ride the AI wave and not be drowned by it. “Almost every successful company has transformed itself digitally. In our case, even our MBA program has technology embedded in it. It’s no longer decision-making but data-driven decision-making. Technology has merged with business. This is what creates a value-added business manager.”
