INDUSTRY TRENDS

Artificial Intelligence

In 2018, a Gartner survey found that AI was already a part of the workflow for 41% of businesses. AI is already the present—but its impact on the future is only set to grow. It has applications in everything from supply chain optimization and data analytics to delivery processes and chatbots. For individuals able to uncover new ways to apply AI, the potential benefits are endless.

Tech and ethics

Businesses are expected to take a more active approach to social issues and have to be seen upholding the values they claim to have. Technology represents a highly useful tool in this regard, especially when it comes to ethical decision-making. WIth new AI tools and applications, companies are better able to identify biases, improve hiring processes and create a greater social impact.

Internet of Things

The interconnected network of real devices known as the Internet of Things is having an impact on traditional industries, and helping overcome age-long challenges. In healthcare, it’s making wearable monitors more readily available. In manufacturing and delivery, inventory management and communication is improved. The progress is evident—but there’s still much more in store for the Internet of Things.

Tech of tomorrow

From drone deliveries and self-driving tractor-trailers to face recognition for payment and crime tracking, modern technology is increasingly the realization of what was once science fiction. With continued fast-paced advances in technology, this trend shows no signs of slowing, proving our human capabilities are increasingly limited only by imagination.

Data Science

As one of the fastest-growing sectors worldwide, data science is increasingly desirable for recruiters and professionals alike. There are currently over 6,500 positions available and a median base salary of $107,801 in the U.S., leading to an unsurprisingly high job satisfaction rate of 4.0. It’s a fantastic time for anyone entering this field—as long as you have the right skills.

"With IE being one of the top-ranked Business Schools, the network is something that helps you, though that would be an understatement. People who work at top companies like IBM, Google, Intel, are always reaching out, giving you insights on how you can get into these companies and how they make things work, and they also offer you resources."
