The program is a collaboration between Prysm Group, a leading economic consulting firm that specializes in emerging technologies. The people who sign up will learn all they can about the Metaverse and its broad business applications through immersive activities and interactive learning experiences. The launch of the program in the Fall will mark the first time an Ivy League business school has offered this sort of thing.
“The Metaverse is a significant and broad phenomenon that is still poorly understood. We hope to equip business leaders, consultants, and entrepreneurs with an understanding of the impending opportunities the Metaverse brings, as well as the practical knowledge to build solutions of value,” said academic director, Professor Kevin Werbach of the Wharton School.
The program is limited in its participation to the course is available and costs $4,500 USD for a six-week program, which includes between 8 and 10 hours per week.
Other universities that have launched new technologies includes those at the University of Cincinnati, with its crypto program and, most recently, Japan’s Tokyo University’s Metaverse program.
