Why Lifelong Learning
According to Babson President Stephen Spinelli Jr. MBA’92, PhD, “the pace of change in the world and in the workplace is creating disruption in almost every industry.” In fact, nearly 40% of U.S. jobs currently sit in occupations that are likely to shrink by 2030, according to one McKinsey study.
Why does this matter? Now more than ever, workers need to be prepared for the future of work, and with it, all of its uncertainty. This “creates an essential and growing need for learning across a lifetime,” Spinelli says.
