Future Studies
We cannot know the future, but drawing on disciplines like entrepreneurship and sociology, we can engage in informed scenarios of (your) possible futures. Explore how you can make your mark on the world and even profit from your passion.

What skills and mindsets are required to navigate the future of work? Studies tell us that creativity, adaptability, resilience and teamwork are key but how are they put to work in the so-called ‘gig economy’ characterized by temporary, flexible jobs – and how does it impact the way we stitch together our careers?

Global Innovators: Navigating the Gig Economy
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits
The so-called gig economy – characterized by temporary, flexible jobs – is one of the biggest current trends to affect the workplace and has the potential to change how we stitch together our careers. What is the gig economy and the shape of the future workplace – its opportunities and challenges? What skills and mindsets are required to navigate it? How can you profit from your passion? In this course, we take a deep dive into the vibrant and mostly thriving community of young contract workers in Stockholm who have embraced the gig economy with gusto. We examine the opportunities and challenges faced by nontraditional workers in various industries in Sweden and beyond – and explore how business culture is changing to adapt to the new landscape in the market for talent.
