To start the fourth semester, students of the Bachelor's program in Nonprofit, Social and Health Care Management were able to attend a two-and-a-half-day virtual symposium and thus experience a successful "kick-off" to their project semester. Several master's students, graduates, and friends and practice partners of the department from various parts of the world also attended the event.
At the beginning of the symposium, Mag.a Gabriele Adelsberger, MSc inspired the students with a keynote speech on "New Work - an incitement to think differently". This was followed by lectures, interviews and discussions with graduates of the program.
In relation to the core theme of the event - the future of work - the speakers emphasized the increased importance of work-life balance and the relevance of a "stable anchor" in a changing world. Frequently mentioned buzzwords when discussing work models of the future were agility and digitalization.
The symposium provided the students with insights into practice and showed them perspectives and professional development opportunities.
"What a week! The symposium was immensely fun. The many impressions and insights into the work of alumni were very inspiring but above all motivating, for the upcoming, uncertain future." (Student BA NSGM)
"Learning how graduates have shaped their further educational and career paths with the foundations of our Bachelor's program shows me the diverse possibilities for my own professional career. This gives security, motivates and inspires." (BA NSGM student)
"I never thought the symposium could be so diverse and close to reality despite the online format." (Student BA NSGM)
