Introduction to Futures Studies and Foresight

01.08.2023 - 31.08.2024


Futures studies can be defined as a systematic study of possible future events and circumstances. Foresight is the perceiving and analysis of the alternative futures and the choices which are related to them. In other words, futures studies and foresight both refer to investigate the futures, and foresight specifically refers to the use of futures research methods and techniques for management purposes.

During this online course, you will study the basics of futures studies and foresight. Some particular materials have been especially put forth, but you will quite soon find out, that there are numerous paths, both academic and practice oriented, beyond the requirements of this course to follow. In a similar fashion, it doesn?t matter if you are an entrepreneur, work in a large public sector institution, or something in between, you can apply the principles and practices of futures studies and foresight.
