WHAT IS AT Y PI CALTECH FUTURES LAB MASTER’ S CANDIDATE LIKE?
I don’t think there is one! Usually, they’ve had some work experience in middle management or senior roles. Often they’re at a career pivot point. Perhaps they’ve been out of the workforce for a while and want to re-enter on their own terms, create their own opportunity. Some have had success in one field and want to apply their skills to another area, possibly one that has more meaning for them. We get people who realise the future of work is going to be very different from the traditional study-work-retire path and want to explore that. We get people who want to solve a problem or manage change in their employing organisation - they bring that burning challenge to the Master’s. We’ve really tried to structure the programme so you can continue with an existing role or business as well.
