Digitized labor market
According to Javier Rogl, global director of Santander Universities, “We are promoting our commitment to higher education to open the doors of the labor market. These scholarships, offered together with a distinguished international partner such as MIT Professional Education, are proof of this. The labor market is being digitized, so there is an increasing demand for professionals with digital skills and thanks to these scholarships they will acquire this knowledge. “
“The shortage of people with skills in digital technology, both in the EU and in Ibero-America, means that thousands of jobs that require digital training may remain vacant. Our mission is to provide MIT knowledge and experience to professionals from all over the world. so that they can develop the competencies necessary to participate and lead firmly in the fourth industrial revolution, “concluded Bhaskar Pant, CEO of MIT Professional Education.
