In 2008, the CBI Education & Skills survey reported that:
- Nine out of ten firms want STEM-skilled graduates. Many businesses need highly numerate and analytical STEM-skilled people for financial positions in their companies.
- 40 per cent of employers across all sectors need STEM-skilled people to design and innovate new products and services.
- Nearly a quarter of employers value STEM skills in sales and marketing roles.
