The course deals with the most significant factors driving changes in working environments, businesses, and organizations, and for workplaces and the workforce. The online modules discuss the topic of the future of work from different angles, including legal, economic, management, and learning perspectives. In addition to completing the online modules, students will engage in virtual cross-university teamwork, coached by an expert from one of the four involved institutions from the ENGAGE.EU network: University of Mannheim, Université Toulouse 1 Capitole, Norwegian School of Economics and WU Vienna:

Learning outcomes
  • Get to know European and international regulations relevant to and adapted to new work requirements, such as the use of technologies
  • Understand the impact of demographic change, globalization, and technological change on work and society in past and future developments
  • Deal with the academic discourse on the future of work and central aspects of associated models focusing on corporate contexts
  • Recognize learning demands and learning opportunities of future workplaces
  • Manage time and resources of the group work
  • Communicate and debate in a cross-university group setting
Attendance requirements

Students have to attend at least 80% of the sessions, in order to be able to master all assignments successfully (The Kick-Off and Closing events, and the meetings scheduled by the supervisor of the group work).

Students attend the Kick-Off and Closing events. The date for the Kick-Off includes an onboarding session right before the event to test WUs virtual campus environment in which the events are hosted.

Further, students have at least two virtual coaching meetings with their group supervisor, which will be announced at the Kick-Off event, and regular virtual meetings within their student groups (comprising peers from the participating universities) to work on the case study.

Teaching/learning method(s)

The course includes four online-modules (asynchronous video inputs, mandatory readings, and quizzes) and a case-study assignment that will be completed in groups.

The modules are hosted on WU’s internal platform for the ENGAGE.EU Signature Course. Further, the students work on a company case study in cross-university teams and present the key outcomes in form of a short video or graphic novel. The small groups are supervised by an expert teaching at one of the partner universities.


The final course grade is composed of the following three components:

  • 20%   Online quizzes on the ENGAGE.EU Signature Course portal (individual - pass/fail per module)
  • 50%   case study assignment Video  (group work)
  • 30%   case study assignment Written analysis (Wordl) (group work)
