Something about Competitive Advantage
Business leaders are becoming more and more concerned with what they call the "skills gap" in today's science technology, engineering and math (STEM) graduates. They're concerned that today's generation doesn't have all of the necessary soft skills to succeed in today's workplace. Historical focus on student expertise in their field may neglect to realize how important it is to actively work on skills like communication, time management or conflict resolution. These skills are critical in the workplace, and being able to demonstrate them can really help a student stand out in today's competitive job market. Dr. Bahby's VSLS training offers an engaging and immersive experience for students to learn and apply critical skills that will position them for success after graduation. This experiential learning experience will offer your students a wealth of knowledge and hands-on application while engaging with course content and collaborating with their peers.
