If we have to describe our time, one word seems the most appropriate: Change – from the most personal everyday habits and style, to the world economy and politics everything is different from it was just 30 years ago. The speed of this change is exponentially increasing.
Indeed, if we look at technology today we are witnessing day by day breakthrough innovations thanks to disruptive energy of entrepreneurs. In addition, big corporations and firms with articulated structures are streamlining themselves and looking for new business chances on the market to keep pace with today world’s outlook.
Our grandparents were born in a society where traveling through another continent was once in a lifetime experience. Today we can plan to go just for a weekend nearly everywhere on the planet. And probably our sons will be already able to go where we never imagined possible, on the moon or Mars.
So if changes are continuous and sometime radicals, and in the end will affect our life, how can we deal with them to take the best?
In this event by Alumni Alta Scuola Politecnica, we will offer an overview on how to successfully ride the wave of change, either in a professional or personal sense. The programme, designed for student or alumni, it is going to focus on change as personal and professional growth opportunity and as necessary need for a company in order to keep pace with dynamic global markets and competition. Experts in the field of changement will share with us their vision.
The selection process at ASP is very strict (1% of 15k+) and the path to graduation is even tougher requiring from students concentration on both vertical in-depth topics and horizontal broad view knowledge.
Whether in corporates, consulting, entrepreneurship, academia, architecture and design practices, our alumni distinguish themselves for their achievements, talent and passion.

We invite international lecturers, partner companies and associations to cope with trending topic in the field of technological and social innovation, entrepreneurship and global challenges.
We treasure our associates diversity, that’s why we try to always address a topic from a broad range of different perspectives.
Building a network is not just about great ideas, classes, conferences and achievements. It’s about people, and having the ability to place the right questions to the right person is priceless.
As we experienced great empathy in other aspers, we started building events to create new personal links and strengthen the existing ones.
Skiing sessions, summer challenges, the Carton Rapid Race, aperitivos, they are all about getting in contact with possible business partners, suppliers, perspective employees or employers, mentors or just friends.
