Workshop 1: The Berkeley Method of Entrepreneurship: The role that Entrepreneurship Education Plays in Shaping the Leaders of the Future
13th May 9-11, Visitor and Innovation Center Joki (Lemminkäisenkatu 12B, Turku)
For 150 years, UC Berkeley has played an important role in educating the academic elite. However, over the past 12 year, the university has turned its focus on preparing its students to innovate. Learn why and how Berkeley has augmented its curriculum to embrace the future.
This workshop will explore the challenges that universities face in preparing students for an uncertain future. With new technologies like AI and automation threatening to destroy the current demand for labor, how will your students respond? Identical workshops are run, one in the morning and another in the afternoon.
