World of Work: 2030 Conference

The rise of digital is changing the world of work: How will business education support the future workplace to meet the needs of the employers?
Change is coming faster than ever –political transformations, demographic shifts and technological advancements are resulting in a redefinition of what work will be in the future.
We ask what good recruitment looks like in 2030. How will great career development happen over the next decade? And – when do we start planning?
The aim of this conference is to exchange ideas and build a community of thinkers and creators to meet the challenges ahead.
