Summary

U.S. graduates are competing with peers all over the world for the jobs of tomorrow. At the current rate of growth, the OECD estimates that there will 200 million 25-34 year olds with a higher education degree by 2020—and the U.S. will account for less than 10% of that population. For our students, global peers will soon become both competitors and colleagues. Should universities be doing more to equip students with the skills they need to be able to collaborate and compete in a global workforce? Panelists will discuss how other western countries are prioritizing internationalization and how the U.S. can be more strategic in their efforts to prepare graduates to navigate globalization.
