Abstract

Future-orientation and anticipation taught in the age of digitization

Alternative title: eLearning offer to introduce futures concepts to various audiences 

In times of permanent change, the term future can be seen as generating fear as well as hope. Therefore, anticipating tomorrow and finding tools to understand and deal with the future are ever present in entrepreneurship as well as educational settings. Still the offers to acquire knowledge, skills, and abilities i.e. basic competences to encounter the unexpected are far and few. The focus of entrepreneurial skills at universities are mainly limited to financial, economic, and business literacy and some add interpersonal and self-directional skills. At this point within the entrepreneurship-education futures studies or strategic foresight is being neglected. But need of students who become the future generation of managers in companies and business associated organizations is to be taught the knowledge on concepts, models, and methods to comprehend, analyze, and deal in the present with future challenges. This will aid them to enhance their practical skills for developing business ideas by discovering new markets, products, or services.
