What's new at TOEFL, GRE, TOEIC: The transversal value of academic and soft skills for mobility and employability

  • Thursday 28 Sept
  • Dock 13, Level 1, Rotterdam Ahoy

Developing transversal competences is vital for universities, as the current global job market demands individuals with cross-cutting skills that can be applied in a wide range of industries and contexts. In this session, we will explore how ETS, the world’s largest non-profit educational testing and assessment organisation, supports educational institutions in evaluating and assessing these vital skills to help inform their admissions decisions and student development activities.
