  • Why Business Skills?

    The Sage difference

    Unlike other skill-based resources, Business Skills is built on the foundation of Sage's academic research expertise. Our contributors translate empirical evidence and combine that background with proven professional experience.

    Editors and contributors were given the directive to select the skills and topics they viewed as most relevant for today's workforce such as work-life balance, the gig economy, implicit bias, data privacy, and intellectual property. The result? Highly practical and useful material for students.
