Live and Learn: Educational Trajectories of Young Professionals and Skills of the Future

04 Jun , 12:00–13:30
Panel discussion
SPIEF Junior, courtyard

Education is back in fashion. Yesterday’s students and young professionals are now returning to universities, enrolling in grad school, taking online courses, and actively acting as teachers and practitioners. Is this due to inadequate training at universities or the rapidly changing world? How can you build your educational trajectory to optimize your investment in learning? What knowledge is in demand among young urban professionals? What do young leaders expect from their future employees? Where are we seeing a gap between university background and the demands of the labour market? How can universities meet the demand for future expertise? Young leaders will share their experience and speak about what they expect from their future employees, universities, and educational startups.
