General description

The world around us is complex, volatile, hyper-connected, surprising and ambiguous. Understand the world and scanning environments, opportunities and challenges in its alternative future conditions is vitally important for organisations in order to survive and succeed.

Anticipating, creating, and managing change in our increasingly fast-paced and globalised technological world is a big opportunity for added skills and prosperity at present and in the future. Understanding large-scale socioeconomic change, driving forces and – accordingly - reorganising social interaction and business practices are key talents to organisations and societies, as well as individuals.

Corporate Foresight is the leading theme and perspective of the Master Class of Corporate Foresight. Throughout the Class there is theoretical knowledge combined with practical training and expert interaction and exchange.

“Master Class” is exactly how it sounds: mastering scientific futures studies and corporate foresight contents and methods for the benefit of organisation or stakeholder network. 

We offer your organisation the possibility to learn from the exclusive overall best, from the Finnish futures studies professionals. Teachers of the class will support your key experts on their way towards mastering corporate foresight on professional level.
