It is easy to understand that we are experiencing a social transformation like never before in our civilization. In addition, it is happening at an enormous speed, transforming our paradigms, production processes, business structures and strategies, personal relationships, social values, political structures, in short, a true revolution with disruption as a key element in most of the changes we are experiencing

In this scenario, training is an enormous challenge to adapt to the new realities of the XNUMXst century.

Among these challenges and in order not to be exhaustive, we will cite the following:

Training must serve to close the gap between generations separated by only a few years

  • The continuous changes will mean that people will have to follow training in skills throughout their lives.
  • Generations must be trained for a society whose mobility will be constant, which will face continuous changes and which will be highly influenced by uncertainty as a reality that will accompany them in their personal and professional development.
  • Change from linear teacher-student communication, with the book as a hierarchical instrument, to a segmented, neat and highly diverse relationship.
  • New ways of learning that focus on the interests of each one, on autonomy and flexibility, on reflective attitudes, on resistance to face the complicated challenges of the future and on the versatility that they will have to manage throughout their lives. The individualization of training processes will be increasingly present in our way of teaching.
  • First of all, the objectives of training in skills must be assessed and the appropriate methodology chosen as steps prior to choosing the most appropriate technological tools.
  • Universities must use technology as an instrument to improve the connection between students and their professors, which is possible today with the development of ICT.
  • The educational processes must collaborate in the re-education of the older generations that prevent their cornering or even their expulsion from the companies. The training should serve to close the gap between generations separated by only a few years, based on new ideas that allow dialogue and intergenerational understanding.

These brief reflections serve to explain that the philosophy of the Center for Higher Education for Business, Innovation and Technology is to work in a new context of education, with an international perspective based on institutional experience, and with the purpose of contributing to the society of the XNUMXst century from a vanguard position in the changes that our society needs to build a better, freer, more just society.

The "T" formation

We at the Center for Higher Education for Business, Innovation and Technology believe that training in "T" is increasingly an urgent need in our societies.

A job interview is achieved by the "Hard Skills" but then the hiring is done by the "Soft Skills"

In today's societies it is essential to form an alliance between “Hard Skills” and “Soft Skills”, that is, between hard and soft skills. The first are similar to the vertical stroke of the T and the second to the horizontal stroke.

More and more experts affirm that a job interview is achieved by the "Hard Skills" but then the hiring is done by the "Soft Skills".

In a new globalized work scenario with accelerated digital development, which is constantly changing and which requires innovative, imaginative, creative people, capable of working as a team with different people, regardless of the place or time, empathetic and with the ability to communicate, “Soft Skills” play an increasingly important role.

Our Center has a marked vocation to contribute to the "T" training of our students, generating an appropriate social and cultural educational environment so that when the time comes they lead the world of the XNUMXst century and make it a better world.

SEK International University is a pioneer in the implementation of “T” training, through experiences that are beginning to bear extraordinary fruit. For this reason, at the Center for Higher Education in Business, Innovation and Technology we want to emphasize this training as a fundamental element in personal development.

In our mission we cannot leave humanism behind. In the words of BAUMAN: "Technological disruption is generating a renunciation of humanism through a growing individualism" that translates into an impoverishment of thought and reflection. We hope that through a humanistic training our students acquire a complete vision of themselves and the world that surrounds them in order to understand that human action without orientation and direction leads to emptiness. For this reason, we try to recover that humanist vision of the world without renouncing that history, time and culture allow us to obtain answers to the complex problems of our society.
