1 in 2 young professionals confident about increasing AI integration.

The new global research said that most young professionals do not see artificial intelligence as a threat.

New research from CEMS showed that the majority of new graduates are confident about the role of artificial intelligence in people's everyday lives.

The study said that 57% feel comfortable or very confident about the increasing integration of AI in everyday life, whilst only 15% said they feel unsettled or scared

The global survey was conducted amongst fresh graduates from the CEMS Master in International Management (MIM), who are now in their first year of work, or who have gone on to further study.

“One key factor driving this positive sentiment may be the seamless incorporation of AI into routine tasks, making life more efficient and convenient. Moreover, there is potential for AI to address pressing global challenges. Young people are aware of AI’s role in fields such as healthcare, climate research, and social justice initiatives,” CEMS Executive Director Nicole de Fontaines said.

The study also reported that 50% said that social media impacts their life positively, whilst 27% said otherwise. 

Overall, 70% of graduates said that they feel optimistic about the future.

Salary main deciding factor for jobseekers

The same CEMS study also found that 81% of graduates said salary was the top factor that would influence their decision to take on a new role, followed by work-life balance (61%) and opportunities for quick career progression (51%).

CEMS said the gap between salary and work-life balance has widened in the past few years, “possibly in response to the current global cost-of-living crisis, meaning salary is an increasingly important factor for jobseekers.”

Amongst those surveyed, 58% said that three to five years is an ideal amount of time to spend in a role before looking for a new one.
