The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania
Future of the Business World
The Future of the Business World online course is a dynamic learning experience for exceptional high school students from around the world. It is designed to introduce students to areas of research by the Wharton faculty and engage them as the next generation of global business leaders. Students attend live daily online events and work independently. Ultimately, they use all the ideas and insights from the course to create final projects that make predictions about the future of the business world. This new course is a chance for students to begin to identify interests and lay the foundation for future education and career goals.
The course conversation is anchored by the idea that while the world is constantly changing, COVID-19 has greatly accelerated that change, propelling the business world into uncharted territory. Students gain new knowledge guided by the pillars of a Wharton education: Innovation and Entrepreneurship; Data Analytics; and the Future of Finance. Throughout the experience, students are asked to contribute their points of view to the learning. The fully online course includes mini-lectures from Wharton faculty, opportunities for live engagements with faculty and Wharton instructors, collaborative projects with peers around the world, and original online real-time business simulations
