This era of information technology shows that character traits, virtues or intrapersonal skills form the distinction between humans and machines. In the ancient Greek philosophy hides a possible solutions for the future challenges that procurement is facing. Nowadays, higher education mostly focuses on knowledge and skills, whereas the ancient Greek educators also trained virtues. For this research an experiment was performed in a Master’s course in which also inter- and intrapersonal skills were trained. Students were surveyed on thirty soft skills before and after the course. Within a short period skills levels of seventeen inter- and intrapersonal skills increased significantly.
