Mr. Marko Selaković, Director – Institutional Development & Student Recruitment at SP Jain School of Global Management – Dubai Campus, has written a column for Gulf News, a leading English newspaper in the UAE, where he discusses how skills are the future and academia must understand the need for transformation.
The article, published on March 28, 2019, highlights that the only constant aspects of the future of technology-driven businesses are changing and learning. In an age where knowledge has become broadly available, what distinguishes an individual is the courage and skills required to make a difference.
Mr. Selaković shares that the comprehensive skill set of the future leaders will consist of basic business skills, leadership skills, critical thinking, innovation skills, lifelong learning and understanding technology.
In addition to the above traits, thinking outside the box, which requires knowledge, courage and skills, is a prerequisite for any disruption, invention or innovation.
Government and businesses in the UAE have shown courage by diving into unexplored fields. However, there is a never-ending scope for developing skills if one wants to be a leader of the future and bring about disruption in innovation, he writes.
