The Fourth Industrial Revolution: Producing versatile graduates for globalised workplaces

study international | September 04, 2019

For the Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF), Professor Klaus Schwab, the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) is already upon us. Spurred by a rapid shift from traditional to technological, the 4IR has challenged a range of industries and connected billions of people to digital networks and tech-based thinking. Calling for leaders and citizens to “shape a future that works for all by putting people first, empowering them and constantly reminding ourselves that all of these new technologies are first and foremost tools made by people for people,” the Fourth Industrial Revolution is a time where students must hold on to their ‘humanness’ and be equipped with skills that meet global workplace demands. Before uniting their talents with university applications, many students are connecting to colleges for foundation programmes and diploma courses to adequately prepare for future industry expectations. By collecting as many employable skills as they can, students will be able to land the most sought-after jobs in the 4IR.
