Open MBA Seminar by Dr Zenon MichaelidesMaster 19.04.2022
Admission is now open for the Pan-European Executive MBA in Baku, Azerbaijan
CITY College, University of York Europe Campus cordially invites you to the Pan-European Executive MBA Seminar on "New Business and Societal challenges in the era of Industry 4.0"
Our world is constantly changing. Global events and megatrends are rapidly and directly affecting all aspects of our lives. Disruptions are increasingly and variably impacting all areas of our world, re-shaping commerce and business alike, whilst irreversibly transforming our existing way of life. Such transformations present us with challenges on multiple levels; in business, as a society, and as individuals in the ways we function and communicate. Our interactions have become more, and in some cases exclusively digital. Automation has overtaken many of our practices and ‘optimised’ them. Artificial intelligence algorithms ‘effectively’ attend to our every need; from selecting everyday products and services to matching us with lifelong partners. Our acceptance, and indeed our future reliance on such transformative technologies cannot be overstated. But can such technologies and advances help us overcome the inevitable and largely negative effects of global disruptions in future? Can innovations in Industry 4.0 present tangible benefits to business and society without the notable downsides that the previous industrial revolutions brought on?
Within the framework of the seminar, there will be a short presentation of the Pan-European Executive MBA programme leading to two MBA degrees, awarded by the University of York, UK and the University of Strasbourg, France.
