Microsoft has revealed that it has hired a new business schools in the United States and the UK to prepare students for their careers.
The Redmond-based company has said that its new UK-based Business School, which it has dubbed the “New Business School”, will begin in January 2019.
The new school will include an “integrated curriculum that combines both the traditional core curriculum and the new business-focused and experiential learning models” with a “new emphasis on digital innovation, human capital, and technology.”
The announcement was made on the Redmond-headquartered company’s Twitter account on Wednesday, where Microsoft also shared the new school’s location and a link to its application process.
Microsoft is currently seeking applicants from the UK and US for the new program.
“We have selected three UK universities to offer our students, and we are looking forward to working with them as we work towards building a strong, internationally competitive and globally driven workforce,” the Microsoft spokesperson said.
This is the second time Microsoft has announced a new programme in the past month.
In March, Microsoft announced a program called Microsoft Connect for US students, which will be “part of a broader global network of business schools and other education providers” in the region.
However, Microsoft has since announced that the Microsoft Connect program will be discontinued in 2019.
Microsoft will also soon launch a new program called The Connected World, which is aimed at US students and will focus on how to integrate digital technology into the workplace.
A separate Microsoft Business School is also being established in the UK, with the aim of bringing together people from different business backgrounds to help each other learn how to make better decisions.
There are currently 2,400 US and 2,000 UK students in its program, which runs from September 2019 to March 2020.
