Future of Work – free open online course by Aalto University

Aalto University launches Future of Work, a free open online course for anyone who wants to learn about the changing landscape of work. The course is a curated collection of the most relevant academic research on the future of work authored by Research Director and University Lecturer Hertta Vuorenmaa, Professor Kristiina Mäkelä and Aalto University’s Executive-in-Residence Juha Äkräs.We are amid a revolution of work, which started already long before the pandemic – and the pandemic has only sped up the process. Making sense of the future of work can feel tricky in the middle of a constant information overflow.

The easily accessible and self-directed course helps you obtain a holistic understanding of the reasons behind and the implications of the changing face of work on an individual,
organisational and societal level.

Prepare yourself for new ways of working – in this course, you’ll learn what organisational culture and structures will look like in the future, how technology and AI will affect how we work and how leadership and management will change going forward. Read more about the course here.
