Learning to Unlearn

“Finding the right moment to unlearn is key. How can we do this? The answer is simple: Wherever and whenever the task of unlearning must take place. You are better off acknowledging and adopting a positive attitude towards the idea of lifelong learning, as reskilling and updating our knowledge are imperative in these times of constant change.”

Learning to Unlearn: transforming higher education. Libro de Pablo Rivas

“After several years of leading Global Alumni and devoting my time to the digital transformation of some of the world’s best universities, I believe that our disruptive contributions have had a huge impact on the transformation of education. In my book, I address how the current educational system has been influenced by technological breakthroughs on both a social and professional level and why the education system must continue to evolve. Only high-quality digital education will allow us to overcome the professional challenges of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.”

IN THE MEDIA

Below you can read some of the thought-leadership articles I have written, and watch some of my television appearances discussing education in the midst of the digital transformation.

ABOUT ME

Having completed my undergraduate degree in Spain, I continued my professional education in the US (at UC Berkeley, Loyola University Chicago, and Harvard). After obtaining an MBA from IESE, I embarked on a journey to discover what is necessary to transform higher education, and how to do it, often wondering: “Why is it that the field of education remains on the sidelines while the internet is leading one of the most important developments for humanity?”

In a globalized world, with ongoing technological innovations discovering new opportunities every day, the field of education cannot continue to remain on the sidelines.

I founded Global Alumni six years ago, in response to this challenge. Today, despite still having a long way to go, I can assure you that our steps have so far led us along the correct path. At Global Alumni, we work with some of the world’s best universities. We convey their culture and knowledge by overcoming language and geographical barriers. Thanks to us, thousands of professionals have updated their skills to meet the requirements of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

I stand up for high-quality digital education. I believe this is the only way to reinforce workers’ skills in the 21st century and to create a solid corporate fabric. Only then will we successfully overcome the challenges of the digital economy.

The technological revolution, economic globalization, and high-quality digital education: the three passions that lead my professional career and motivate me to continue along this exciting journey.
