What is Global Competitiveness?
Global Competitiveness is a school of thought that encourages adopting non-traditional methods for imparting education, using technology-based tools and resources. This means that students are no longer in traditional classrooms, learning from teachers using textbooks, pens and papers only.
Instead, with Global Competitiveness courses, one can have access to remote students that sign into their classrooms using the internet through modes like online open courses or video chat or dialing in through voice calls, to learn materials that are more dynamic in nature and at a pace best suited to them.
Education 4.0, a course that prepares you for global competitiveness, was developed as a response to Industry 4.0 that saw a marked increase in the use of internet-based technology and communication tools across industries including ancillary industries like Healthcare 4.0, Technology 4.0, etc. Education 4.0 has been developed to create trained, qualified professionals who are ready for a highly globalized and digital-driven world.
