Two students (Larissa Filice and Lubna Abu-Jazar) from the Niagara University in Ontario MBA program joined the challenge with the graduate and undergraduate students from the University of Toronto, University of Alberta and George Brown College, forming a team of 10 students. With CoBA’s Dr. Boiarintseva’s and Dr. McNab’s guidance and support, the team chose to address the Business Council of Canada’s challenge.
Over the next decade, Canada’s labour market will undergo significant transformation. Rapid technological change will cause employers to put more emphasis on digital competencies. Human skills – including collaboration, communication, critical thinking and creativity – will also be at a premium. Canada and many other countries will increasingly compete for talent. While Canada has world-class education systems, there are often mismatches between the needs of employers and the skills of Canadian post-secondary graduates. This mismatch has resulted in questions about whether there should be a larger role for employers in the education system to help bridge the gap between expectations and outcomes.
