Course program

As a result of the pandemic the world is experiencing new ways of living and working.

The post-Covid19 economy will be shaped by new habits, practices and regulations. The

"Low touch economy" is probably here to stay. From "home delivery of everything" to

local tourism, from "work from home" to healthcare, our world will be very different,

and so will be the world of work. 


In this lecture, participants will listen to a panel of experts describe how global macro

trends are shaping the future of work and the main impacts on the labor market and

the workforce. Implications on future job creation will be discussed. Participants will be

asked to provide examples from their own sector and work experiences. 


Main questions answered by this module: 

  • What will the future of work look like? 
  • Which jobs that do not exist yet will emerge in the next 5 to 10 years?

The debate over the impacts of automation technologies on jobs and employment is

heated. How many jobs will be created by automation technologies? How many jobs will

be displaced? Tons of reports and papers have been published on the topic. 


This lecture will provide an overview of key service automation technologies, mainly

covering robotic process automation (RPA), artificial intelligence (AI) and cognitive

automation (CA), along with a framework to analyze their impacts on jobs and the

workforce. Examples of business applications and related business impacts will be

shared and discussed. 


Main question answered by this module: 

  • Is automation creating or displacing jobs?

According to the World Economic Forum, 50% of all employees will need reskilling by

2025 as a result of the "double-disruption" of the pandemic and increasing adoption of

automation technologies. 

This lecture will focus on the current and upcoming "big skill shift" and on the efforts

that organizations and governments will have to put in place to address it. 

Through the analysis of case studies, participants will learn how large organizations are

executing workforce upskilling and reskilling and managing organizational change.

Main question answered by this module: 

  • What are the main implications of changes in the world of work for organizations? 

AI is impacting the full spectrum of HR Management. According to a recent survey by

AIDP (Associazione Italiana per la Direzione del Personale), 58% of HR Directors in Italy

have adopted automated/AI-powered recruiting & selection tools in the last three years.

The intersection of HR and Technology – and the applications of AI in HR process

management are the key topics covered in this lecture. 


Through a combination of international and Italian case studies and the contribution of

guest speakers, participants will gain a unique insight on this topic. 


Main questions answered by this module:

  • What does the HR Department of the Present look like? 
  • What will it look like in the Future?

Since its birth, the office concept has undergone fundamental changes from the open

plan office to the office as we know it today. 


A brief overview of the evolution of the workplace throughout the last two centuries will

be provided. This module will look at how human-centered design and digital+physical

elements are being combined to create a new concept of workplace: the phygital



Main questions answered by this module:

  • What will future workplaces look like? 
  • What will be the drivers of design of future workplaces?

As the proportion of tasks currently performed by workers will be either completely

replaced by machines or augmented by a human-machine interface, skills such as

empathy, context sensing, and critical & creative thinking will be increasingly critical to

finding a new job. Moreover, the accelerated obsolescence of knowledge and

competencies requires continuous learning to ensure current and future employability.

As Aaron Dignan, author of "Brave New Work," puts it: "Most four-years technical degrees

teach two years of useless stuff, because the first two years are useless by the time they



In this lecture participants will gain an insight on what it takes to obtain and maintain a

fulfilling job and remain competitive in the labor market. 


Main questions answered by this module: 

  • What do I need to do to increase my employability?


The fee includes all the materials provided during the course and participation in the Career Day, where participants will meet with our partner companies.

Participants will receive a final certificate at the end of the course, upon completion of a final challenge. Each certificate is identified by a QR code and recorded on the Hyperledger blockchain. It will incorporate all the course – related contents, projects, and information.

Don’t worry, all course participants will have access to our Digital Campus where you will be able to watch, listen to and read (video, podcast, transcript) almost everything you have missed.
We said almost because it is not possible to find the Live-content among the materials uploaded, so the only way to interact with professors and guest speakers will be that of participating in the live event. We highly recommend it, it will be worth it.

This Executive Program will equip participants with the knowledge and the tools needed to tackle future challenges and increase their employability. EIIS is aimed at creating a strong community of professionals passionate about the same topics: how to get ready for a new era in the job market.

The final challenge will be organized together with our partner Oracle and will consist in solving a real business problem by applying the concepts learned during the lectures. This will give participants the opportunity to put what they have studied into practice and measure themselves with a concrete case.

The course is structured in 6 dynamic, interactive and digital modules. The program director, Emanuele Cacciatore, together with the members of the Faculty will guide you through the course, when you will also have the opportunity to listen to Guest Speakers. 

The lectures will be composed by both live and recorded speeches and explanations and Q&A sessions in which participants will be able to interact with the panel and ask questions on the topics covered during the lecture. 

Lectures will take place online, every Thursday from 6pm to 8pm (GMT+1) and will be starting on April 22, 2021.
