The new Masters Program in Foresight and Innovation is a great idea. Every business, organization, educational institution, and government should be on top of emerging trends impacting their field of work and operation, so that they can be proactive in planning for their futures and aware of emerging opportunities.
Linda GROFF (Professor, Political Science & Futures Studies, and Coordinator, Behavioral Science Program, California State University)
I think this Master is quite necessary because we need people that go seriously and deeply into the reality of our world in order to improve the insctinctive idea of the future.
Thierry GAUDIN (Founder of Foresight2100)
Ce projet apparaît aussi bien ancré dans une réalité d'entreprise que tourné vers les compétences indispensables pour développer une activité porteuse. La prospective est essentielle pour faire face aux challenges à venir et tout leader devrait en posséder une connaissance minimale.
Philippe Camille AKOA (Directeur du FEICOM (Cameroun))
This program contains many new and innovative aspects and is certain to attract a wide range of talented people who are seeking to understand and deal with our dynamically evolving world. Foresight and innovation are not merely current ‘buzz words.’ They are two essential components of viable futures that apply equally in both technical and human contexts.
Richard SLAUGHTER (Foresight International, Brisbane, Australia.)
The actual programme which includes understanding change, innovation engineering, advanced thinking, organisational foresight and immersion projects is presented at a level to stimulate the best thinkers. This will be a marvellous opportunity for our existing innovators and future leaders to acquire an understanding of futures thinking that will eventually contribute to our society. We look forward to hearing more.
