FUTURE STUDIO

In the Future Studio component of our program, students work closely with mentors and small teams to engage with broad issues that align with their individual ambitions and strengths. They’ll be fully involved in the rigorous process behind making new ideas commercial, sustainable and impactful, learning both to lead and to collaborate with others.

It’s in this innovative creative space in our downtown Vancouver site that we get really hands-on with real-world, open-innovation projects. Using human-centered design tools and critical thinking, students work together to discover innovative solutions, build a sharp vision, learn through prototype and feedback, and scale their efforts for optimal impact. In short, they’ll experience what it’s like to work as high-level innovators and entrepreneurs, for leading brands, from concept to roll-out.

Future Studio At a Glance: The Future Studio component runs through the entire leadership program and is supported by our corporate partners.

EXPERT FORUM

Forget lectures. At The Academy of Tomorrow, students learn by talking openly and directly with experts and leading entrepreneurs about topics that young leaders should be familiar with. Engineered to be interactive, dynamic and inspiring, our Expert Forums encourage students both to indulge their curiosity and also to practice the skill of asking the right questions—questions that will get to the heart of an issue, persuade people of your leadership, gather others to your cause, and reframe an issue in an entirely different way. The art of knowing which questions must be asked—and answered—is a tool that can kickstart a lifetime of success within and beyond the workplace.
