Specialists should develop ‘general’ skills

Posted By Samara Tu, Friday, December 04, 2015

Specialists should develop skills outside of their disciplines to make themselves more competitive, according to educators from over 70 of the world’s leading business schools who participated in a session called “Cross-Disciplinary Programs: Making a Place for Design, Engineering, Humanities and Science." This session was a part of this years’ GBSN Annual Conference in Manila.

These skills, which participants listed as important for entrepreneurship, should be developed in cross-disciplinary programs, where, for example, an engineer can pursue a master's degree in business administration. 

Desired components of cross-disciplinary programs include development of negotiation skills, communications skills, geopolitical understanding, critical and out-of the-box thinking, and financial understanding as well as knowledge of crisis management, project management, ethics and sustainability, leadership, business modeling and entrepreneurship.
