The Education Gap

All these problems give rise to what Shang Learning identified as the Education Gap – the missing link between where students are right now, and where they need to be on the path to a successful future.

It is becoming clearer to industry experts, social scientists, and cross-cultural specialists that the “education gap” is in cross-cultural awareness and soft skills.

These are the attributes you can see in today’s leaders, and will be even more crucial for the leaders of tomorrow.
