ESADE Alumni Careers' inaugural session: The professional of the future: are you ready?


October 10 OF 2018 from 07:00 PM to 09:00 PM

The world is changing at an ever rapid pace, with new technologies, globalisation, an ageing population, etc. As a result, many companies are rethinking their structures and processes only to realise, in the end, that the organisation’s agility depends, in particular, on its people. At the same time, the digital revolution is automating more tasks and fomenting the rise of new professions, resulting in more complex work settings. Companies now need people with other qualities, and there are significant gaps between supply and demand in the job market.
Purpose, self-leadership and constant learning, amongst other aptitudes, the professional competency profile of the future. Do you want to find out more?

ESADE Alumni Careers is pleased to invite you to this flash session to kick off the 2018-2019 academic year. Under the guidance of Santiago García, Ainhoa Fornós (GCI 03), Agustín Peralt (MBA 96) and Joaquín Viñas, we’ll learn about the key competencies needed to successfully face and overcome the new challenges presented by the job market of today and the future.

We look forward to seeing you there!

A reception will follow this event.
