The McGill School of Studies is excited to announce a brand new course, Anticipating and Managing Disruption in the Language Industry.
Created to respond to the current situation and help provide language professionals with the knowledge and skills required to effectively anticipate, prepare for and manage risks and respond to disruption effectively, this 3-credit course will take place this summer and be offered remotely.
The course will analyze various forms of disruption encountered within the language industry, both internal (e.g., advances in technology, abrupt changes in market demand) and external (e.g., financial, health and environmental crises) in an attempt to better understand their impact at the individual and organizational level.
The focus will be on equipping the language professionals of today and tomorrow with the hands-on tools, strategies and models they need to adapt and take control of the situation, respond with agility and resilience, and embrace diversification as a means for future-proofing their career.
