Which are the most talent competitive countries?

Recognized worldwide, Swiss vocational education is known for preparing young professionals for the global job market. Over the last ten years, Switzerland has been consistently ranked among the most competitive countries in the world. It’s one of the reasons we’re invested in bringing Swiss-quality professional education to companies around the world.

At the end of 2023, the World Economic Forum (WEF) ranked Switzerland first in its ability to grow sustainably. One of the factors contributing to Switzerland's competitiveness is the quality of its education system. According to WEF, Swiss education is "one of the best in the world" because it "prepares students for success in many areas." In terms of investment, countries with a highly educated population are more likely to have a skilled workforce, which in turn leads to more sustainable economic growth.

Switzerland ranks number one for Talent Competitiveness in 2023.

Swiss education focuses on encouraging students to develop their talents from an early age—cognitive and analytical skills, as well as social and emotional skills. Students are encouraged to think critically, solve problems and work in teams. Technology and innovation are also integrated into Swiss education. One of the hallmarks of Swiss teaching methodology is the partnership between industry and education. These partnerships allow students to have contact with the real world and develop the skills needed to excel in the job market.

To ensure that students are prepared for the future demands of the job market, vocational schools are investing in new technologies and teaching methods, both online and in-person, to prepare students for their future careers. Around 46 percent of young Swiss people, who completed compulsory basic education in 2023, opted for vocational education to start their careers. This number reflects just how much the Swiss vocational education system is valued within Switzerland.
