The tech brain, Bill Gates, has revealed the three most essential skills that will make one successful in professional life — and it most definitely rules out anyone who does not excel in science and numbers.
Based on data he has collected, the iconic tech entrepreneur and Microsoft co-founder said people with three backgrounds will be the most in-demand in the coming years: sciences, engineering and economics.
Speaking to the Executive Editor of LinkedIn Daniel Roth, Mr. Gates said; “I do think of basic knowledge of the sciences, math skills, economics — a lot of careers in the future will be very demanding on those things.”
”It’s not necessarily that you’ll be writing code, but you need to understand what can engineers do and what can they not do.”
Gates added that workers efficient in those subjects will be “the agents of change for all institutions”.
