The World Economic Forum launches a learning platform for professionals seeking up-to-date strategic knowledge


The World Economic Forum (WEF) has created Forum Academy, a new learning platform based on the Open edX technology that provides audiences with the opportunity to participate in discussions, addressing global, regional and industry-oriented challenges through courses.

“The Forum Academy is poised to satisfy the need for up-to-date strategic knowledge demanded by professionals who need to keep abreast of fast-changing landscapes across regions and business sectors,” explains edX.

These courses in Forum Academy will allow leaders to access the knowledge of a dynamic, global network of experts. The first course, “Global Technology Leadership”, includes leaders from Carnegie Mellon University, University of Michigan, and Tom Preston-Werner, CEO and Co-Founder of GitHub.
