The 4th Industrial Revolution: Smart Manufacture – Do or Do Not?

How are the industrial processes changing due to the proliferation of robots and smart devices? 

The 4th Industrial Revolution takes place not in a galaxy far far away, but around us – right here and now. This provides an opportunity for advanced industrial companies to attain a massive advantage, but the process of automation and digitalisation isn’t smooth: It creates new tasks and opportunities, which necessitates investment and a new kind of leadership attitude as well. Thus, the question becomes whether the company should do it at all, and if so, when and how?

This year’s second SUSCO Youth Workshop takes the participants to the world of industry, where they will tackle new challenges via interactive tasks. See you there! May the 4th be with you!

Participation in the event is free of charge, but registration is required. 

Time of event: 5.15 – 8.00 pm. 4 May 2017
Venue: Central European University, Nádor u. 15, Room 103.

  • "I have been recently nominated as the Regional IT Manager for West Africa at Unilever. My CEU Business School education has been a key differentiator during an otherwise very competitive recruitment process. I would like to thank all my great peers of the 2013-14 cohort and the wonderful faculty at the B-School for the valuable learning experience I had during my time in BP."
