2024’s most in demand skills and how you can master them

Based on a recent report from Coursera, we take a look at how RMIT Vietnam's master's programs align with the most in-demand skills for 2024 and beyond.

In an ever-evolving job market, characterised by global macroeconomic challenges, the importance of aligning education with the most in-demand skills cannot be overstated. A current report from Coursera has recently looked at the most sought-after skills for 2023-2024, and in this article, we explore some of them! 

Digital skills take the lead

Coursera’s report, entitled The Job Skills of 2023 emphasises the rapid growth of digital skills as the top trend in the job market. In 2023 and beyond, employers are actively seeking candidates with digital competencies, indicating a strong demand for skills like data visualisation and software development. 

This trend aligns closely with RMIT Vietnam's Master of Artificial Intelligence program, as well as the MBA’s Technology and Innovation Major. 

Noteworthy for the Master of Artificial Intelligence, is that students not only gain deep insight into the technical aspect of working with AI, but they also receive the philosophical and ethical foundations needed by AI and Data Science professionals. With this knowledge alongside their technical skills, graduates carry the awareness of key ethical, privacy and governance considerations for managing data and data security. 

User experience skills on the rise

Skills centred on user experience are also showing significant growth, reflecting the increasing digitisation of industries. RMIT Vietnam's MBA program places a strong emphasis on design thinking, digital innovation and digital risk management, making the degree highly valuable for professionals seeking to master the essential skills relating to effective customer engagement and satisfaction. 

Leadership and management skills

There is a growing importance for leadership and management skills in guiding teams through change - a trend that RMIT Vietnam's MBA program is well suited for, especially with its Leadership Minor. With the economic consequences of the pandemic coupled with uncertainty due to various global conflicts and logistical issues, the demand for effective leaders who can navigate change and manage teams with empathy has never been higher. The MBA program's focus on leadership and management prepares students to take on leadership roles and make a positive impact in their organisations. 

Communication, collaboration, inclusivity and diversity

No workplace succeeds without effective communication, and it remain a key skill for hybrid work environments. RMIT Vietnam's Master of International Business (MIB) program places a strong emphasis on cross-cultural communication and collaboration, preparing students to excel in global business settings.
