The world is getting more and more connected, not only consumers but also organizations are increasingly interlinked. The public and private sector, once clearly separated, are moving closer to each other and will continue to do so. More and more new initiatives will stem from the interfaces between those sectors. The next generation of leaders will be inspired by and will seek the connectivity between the public & private worlds in order to be a catalyst for change.
In this general module students are introduced not only to trends, but also to methods and tools that help create (a vision on) the future and therefore help shape that future. The focus will be on future trends, for business and public sectors, but also trends that are already taking shape in the current reality.
In this module you will look at several global trends that also have a connection to the UN sustainability goals.
