Program of the Conference

Will robots replace people at their workplaces?


Recently, this issue has been actively discussed by the international community and some scientists can predict that the development of our technology will lead to the disappearance of approximately 40% of the jobs from the job market in the following ten years. 


But does the future really look so disappointing?


We would like to discuss the employment perspectives for the students in the era of robotisstion during the International Conference "Job Market Trends: Humans vs Robots" on November 20th, 2019 organized by the Faculty of Finance, Plekhanov Russian University of Economics. 

During the Conference we will discuss the following questions:

  • What kind of students should world universities produce for the business companies to be competitive on the educational market?

  • How should faculties providing financial degrees face the upcoming challenge from the robotization trend?
