Management Consulting in the 4IR

As the world recovers from massive unemployment levels due to the pandemic, early trends show that the new world of work is shifting away from full-time jobs to short-term contracts and multiple gigs. In a world where freelancers and “gig-ers” continue to replace permanent jobs, how can you stand out and be successful? The Johannesburg Business School brings you an exclusive Management Consulting programme to help you navigate this emerging world of work that is driven by the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). It is designed to give you contextual understanding as well as the mindset, technical skill, and demeanor required to be an outstanding consultant or freelancer.
