The demand for international business graduates is on the rise and is expected to grow within the post-pandemic world.
According to McKinsey: “2021 will be the year of transition. Barring any unexpected catastrophes, individuals, businesses and society can start to look forward to shaping their futures rather than just grinding through the present. The next normal is going to be different. It will not mean going back to the conditions that prevailed in 2019. Indeed, just as the terms “prewar” and “postwar” are commonly used to describe the 20th century, generations to come will likely discuss the pre-COVID-19 and post-COVID-19 eras.” (www.mckinsey.com)
