Arizona State University preparing future business leaders in a rapidly changing world

In 2020 and beyond, the urgency for employers and workers to adapt their skills and operations to remain relevant in a virtual world has quickly become a top priority. Top trends in business continue to revolve around data analytics and management to meet the demand of a remote world. 

Even in a pre-pandemic world, workforce trends had been predicting a shift in the need for the acquisition of new skills for workers to remain competitive. Advancements in artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, nanotechnology, 3D technology, genetics, and biotechnology are changing the way we live and work. In 2017, the McKinsey Global Institute estimated that as many as 375 million workers — or 14 percent of the global workforce — would have to switch occupations or acquire new skills by 2030 because of automation and artificial intelligence. This demand has only accelerated in the era of social distancing.
