THIS WEEK'S TOPIC: What curriculum (or other) changes are needed to better prepare Singapore's university graduates for the new economy and the future of work?

Cheung Pui Yuen Chief Executive Officer Deloitte Singapore

In the future of work, talent with an entrepreneurial mindset that embodies qualities such as critical thinking, resilience, collaboration, and social and emotional intelligence will be held in high regard. A curriculum that does not confine students to a single speciality but exposes them to different perspectives will help develop this mindset. In addition, these perspectives will enable the students to better balance and navigate the up and coming digital economy, and to better collaborate with people across disciplines and cultures - so that they can thrive and succeed in the fast-paced and fast-changing world.
