CloudComputing Insider, Germany: Cognizant’s Research Shows That Students Need to Prepare Now for Jobs That Don’t Yet Exist

Excerpts from CloudComputing Insider’s article:

Cognizant conducted a global survey of 601 executives and 262 higher education institutions in Future of Learning. It shows what changes companies and universities are making in their education and training programs, and what challenges they need to address in order to support the workforce of tomorrow.

Companies and universities should train their employees and students not only for current jobs, but also for jobs that do not yet exist. In the ‘Future of Learning’ survey by IT service provider Cognizant, trends emerged that were soon to be noticeable in companies and universities.

The majority of surveyed companies (80 percent) and universities (72 percent) agree that it is extremely important to prepare employees and students to work with emerging digital technologies. However, they also face a mammoth task: Companies and universities in Europe estimate that in the next five years, they will only be able to prepare enough for new types of work for 20 percent of their employees or 50 percent of their students. And today, the whole thing looks even grimmer: 80 or 90 percent of European universities and companies are unable to do so.”
