Scoring the highest marks in the class is no longer enough. Increasingly, university programs want incoming students who are good communicators, work well in a team, show empathy and are ethical.

The feisty Toronto-based start-up Drop enables millennial shoppers to collect points when purchasing at one store – and redeem them at another.
