University Of Pennsylvania to Offer Metaverse Course

Making it the first Ivy League school to do so.

Starting in the Fall, the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School will offer a six-week Metaverse certification program. Titled “Business in the Metaverse Economy,” the program is specifically tailored to business and technology professionals seeking to learn about the associated technologies.

The program comes as a collaboration from Prysm Group, a leading economic consulting firm that specializes in emerging technologies. Those who attend will learn about the Metaverse and its far-reaching business applications through immersive activities and interactive learning experiences. The launch of the program in the Fall will mark the first-ever offering of its kind by an Ivy League business school.

“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 the program’s academic director, Professor Kevin Werbach of the Wharton School.

Limited enrollment for the program is currently open and is priced at $4,500 USD for the six-week program that includes 8 to 10 hours a week.

Other universities to launch emerging technology programs include the University of Cincinnati, with its crypto program, and most recently Japan’s University of Tokyo’s Metaverse program.

Elsewhere in Web3, Ledger is set to launch its own NFT platform with limited edition hardware.
