Anticipating Market Demand

Mar 28, 2022

I liked this article on how educational institutes (and their funders) can (or can't) predict market demand for learning programs. The most salient observation, to my mind, was this: "when companies talk about a skills gap, they aren't talking about problems with recent graduates, they are saying that the talent pipeline of ten years ago was not wide enough." So yeah, changing college and university program offerings is probably not addressing the problem. Image: Holon / ICEF.
