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.
