There are 10 skills that are highly valued by the market.

Business and Students often complain that university and school does not prepare them for the future. The results of a survey from the National Association of Colleges and Employers shows what are the critical skills needed in the market:

  1. Communication
  2. Teamwork
  3. Decision making & Problem solving
  4. Ability to plan, organize, and prioritize work (Planning)
  5. Ability to obtain and process information (Information Literacy)
  6. Ability to analyze quantitative data
