Eighty percent (80%) of CEOs say that reskilling employees is their top strategy to enable digital transformation. To help corporations implement this vision, the Digital Business Series is part of a turnkey solution supported by Boston University’s change management experts.
In 2018, Boston University will release courses across seven topics:

Each online course in the Questrom series has been optimized to engage modern enterprise learners using the Toolwire TILE “engagement and badging achievement” platform. Through a partnership between Boston University, Toolwire, and Credly, employees who successfully complete these courses receive stackable, industry-standard digital badges from Boston University via Credly’s Acclaim open-badging platform – https://www.youracclaim.com/org/boston-university.
“Every world-class organization has realized that digital transformation must rely on digital education,” commented Jonathan Lehrich, Questrom’s Associate Dean of Executive Education. “But until now, digital education has rarely achieved the scale, impact, or flexibility that enterprises demand. Now these cutting-edge courses are providing them with authoritative content, an engaging learner experience at all levels, and machine-searchable metadata that can be tracked according to companies’ critical talent needs and strategic goals.”
“The two biggest challenges facing today’s digital companies are engagement and change management,” said David James Clarke IV, Toolwire’s Chief Digital Officer. “With Toolwire and Boston University, you have two teams that are dedicated to solving these 21st century problems. I look forward to working with enterprise learning leaders to help upskill and engage their employees with these world-class BU courses.”
