Microcredentials: The Future of Work’s Game-Changing Training

Breaking Traditions: The Future of Education and Professional Development through Lifelong Learning

In the past, education and professional careers were viewed as separate entities with distinct periods.

José Manuel Mas, vice-rector for Academic Policy and Teaching Staff at ESIC, emphasizes the importance of recognizing that education has an expiration date in the era of technological revolution and job reconversion.
