It used to be that a single bout of education could carry a professional for a single career. After all, it’s not like the average education is short. From kindergarten through a masters or doctorate, most professionals spend a minimum of 12-15 years in focused, guided learning. By the time a young adult reached the summit of their personal learning development, they had a specialized knowledge that allowed them a certain mastery within a limited professional field. For many years this worked just fine.
But then the world started to change faster and faster. Where a single course of education used to be enough to carry the average person (or even the above-average person) through a successful 40 year career, most industries are in a state of constant evolution. The career you enter, upon graduating from higher education institutions of today, will not be the career you will inhabit 10 years from now, much less 40. The whole conversation of what higher education can be, and how it can be of the most use to real working people, is changing all the time.
For professional adults, it’s important to constantly be adding to knowledge and skills required for the job. To help accommodate this personal growth, Harvard Business School is expanding its offerings to professionals, thinkers, and lifelong learners of all ages. Through a comprehensive business course that unfolds over 8 weeks, bright professionals from all over the world will come together for transformative learning which will inform the careers they go back to. In generations past, it seemed that to leave a job for more education was something that no one could afford to do. Today, it seems more like it’s something that professionals can’t afford not to do. By taking time to get the best modular education available, from the best business school on the planet, you’ll continue to grow in your knowledge and skills your whole career long.
