CME Skills in Demand

Across all our majors, students have the opportunity to combine academic disciplinary knowledge with professional, applied skills and experiences that are highly relevant for today’s complex and changing labor market.

Indeed, our programs provide hands-on learning for both the “soft” and “hard” skills that companies need most now(opens in new window).  Across all our majors, students are trained in the increasingly important and vital “soft” skills of creativity, persuasion, and collaboration.  Importantly, our students also leave our programs with the most in-demand “hard” skills including:

  • Digital marketing
  • People management
  • Universal design
  • Video production
  • Translation
  • Audio production
  • Social media marketing
  • Journalism
  • Customer service systems
