  1. Experts in digital transformation
    Globalization, digitalization, mobility – mega-issues for the future of our work world. In the distance learning program “New Work” at the IU International University, BA students deal with these questions and develop strategies for designing agile working environments. In addition to the basics of modern personnel management, the focus is on the areas of psychology and educational theory in the business environment.
  2. Digital strategies from the innovation lab
    The Digital Entrepreneurship master’s program does more than train prospective founders. Existing companies also need digitally fit “intrapreneurs” who think entrepreneurially and can surmount outdated structures. In the three-semester full-time course at Regensburg University of Applied Sciences (OTH), students learn to implement start-up and innovation concepts.
  3. Agile human resource management
    It is becoming increasingly difficult for companies to attract motivated specialists – and to keep them. This results in new tasks for HR managers. These tasks are helping to strategically shape the future of companies more and more. This is where the bachelor program in Personal Management & New Work of the IOM Institute for Organization & Management at the Steinbeis University comes in. It links work and studies, looks at the latest trends and provides new work tools.
  4. From practice for practice
    The University of Applied Sciences Mittelhessen (THM) works with more than 950 partner companies in the region: the dual master’s program in Future Skills and Innovation is aimed at BAs in all disciplines. Students work in interdisciplinary teams, evaluate developments in digitization and its ever shorter innovation cycles, and learn to establish new work strategies in their companies and organizations.
  5. New working concepts for the future
    Anyone who has to respond to the demands of a digitized and individualized world needs to bring creativity and adaptability to the job. The SRH University in North Rhine-Westphalia targets social scientists with the master’s program in New Work: Consulting. Coaching. Supervising. Study of the basics of building relationships and communication processes in the area of New Work is as much a part of the program as is the discussion of images of human being and leadership theories.
