Today’s business world is one of disruption. New technologies are rapidly changing how companies operate, and for many of today’s grads, that means their future jobs may not yet even exist.

One question that b-schools everywhere are scratching their heads over is how best to prepare leaders to thrive in a business landscape that’s shifting so quickly. Today’s solutions may not be enough to solve tomorrow’s business problems, so how do you prepare students to problem-solve?

Open to all Hult students as elective options, these self-led, online courses cover a wide array of cutting-edge tech topics including drones, 3D printing, blockchain, robotics, genome editing, virtual and augmented reality, the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence and machine learning. They’re called ‘nano’ because they’re shorter than Hult’s regular electives, meaning a student can take three nano courses in place of one regular elective.
