      Overview

      The World Economic Forum estimates that the number of people aged over 60 is set to double by 2050. With ageing populations posing immense economic, social and political challenges and opportunities now and into the future, the Ageing program prepares graduates for innovative career opportunities in a rapidly expanding sector.

      This program will connect you with a large local and international pool of experts from a wide range of fields and backgrounds. This is the first program of its kind, bringing together academics from multiple disciplines, including: public health, medicine, architecture and design, engineering, business and economics, government, and the arts. Through this program, you will discover how to think creatively about the future of ageing. You will also learn how to evaluate the changing needs of this demographic trend. This will involve looking at various aspects related to ageing, such as: government initiatives, remodeling of workplaces and design implications for public spaces.
