Foresight (M.S.)

The Master of Science in Foresight prepares students to enter an emerging professional field helping clients and employers anticipate significant changes that lie ahead and to influence those changes to achieve long-term goals.

Professional futurists emphasize systemic and transformational change as opposed to traditional forecasters and planners who focus on incremental change based on existing conditions and trends. Since long-term predictive forecasts are rarely correct, futurists describe alternative plausible and preferable futures, in addition to the expected future.

The program provides collaboration and innovation with multiple perspectives on foresight, business and marketing, consumer science and retailing.
