As technology and Artificial Intelligence (AI) continue to advance, there is a growing opportunity to leverage these tools to improve higher education in the United Kingdom (and even globally), especially for underrepresented communities and people of colour. With the right approach, AI and technology can be powerful tools for making education more accessible, more personalised, and more engaging for all students.

One exciting example of how these technologies can be used to create more accessible and equitable education is our online course from Urban MBA, which is focused on teaching underrepresented communities how to run successful businesses while keeping future technologies in mind.

Urban MBA courses

We have created an online course for the street entrepreneur. For myself and my team, it is important to ensure that education is accessible to all.

The team believes that entrepreneurship is the future, but, if entrepreneurs aren’t prepared for future technological advancements, they won’t be relevant enough to be successful.

The course is unique in that it combines traditional business education with a focus on social justice and community empowerment. Our course is designed to help students from underrepresented communities overcome the barriers that often prevent them from accessing high-quality business education and succeed in the world of entrepreneurship.

At the heart of this course is a focus on teaching students about the importance of AI and the Metaverse for the future of business. By exposing students to the future of technology we, myself and my team, have created a course that will remain relevant, have a wider impact and success rate.

Running a business with an ever looming fear of technology taking over your expertise is something of the past when you enrol into the Urban MBA courses.

The future of education is technological

Artificial intelligence

One of the most exciting developments in this area is the rise of personalised learning. By using AI to analyse student data, including their academic performance and learning preferences, universities can offer tailored learning experiences that are designed to meet the unique needs of individual students. This approach can be especially valuable for students who may struggle to keep up with their studies due to factors such as language barriers or learning disabilities.

For example, AI can be used to identify students who are struggling with a particular subject and offer them personalised resources and support. It can also be used to track student progress and provide targeted feedback and guidance to help students stay on track. This can be especially useful for students from underrepresented communities and people of colour who may face additional barriers to success in higher education.

The Metaverse

Another way that technology can improve higher education is by offering more immersive and engaging learning experiences. Technologies such as virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) give students a more hands-on and interactive approach to learning, which can help to deepen their understanding of complex concepts.

Virtual reality simulations, as an example, can allow students to practise skills such as surgery or engineering in a safe and controlled environment. Similarly, AR can be used to create interactive learning experiences that allow students to explore and manipulate complex data sets, which can help to make abstract concepts more concrete and accessible.

Similarly, the rise of big data and predictive analytics could be used to identify trends and patterns in student data that could help to inform the design of more effective learning experiences. This could include everything from identifying the most effective teaching strategies, to predicting which students are at risk of dropping out so that interventions can be put in place to help them stay on track.

Quantum computing

Perhaps even more exciting than the use of AI and the Metaverse is the potential for quantum computers to revolutionise education in the future. Quantum computers are a new type of computer that can process information at a speed that is orders of magnitude faster than traditional computers. This could have significant implications for the world of education, as it could enable new types of learning experiences that are currently not possible.

For example, quantum computers could be used to create simulations and models that are so complex that they are currently beyond the reach of traditional computers. This could enable students to explore and understand concepts that are currently considered too abstract or theoretical to be taught in a traditional classroom setting.

Furthermore, quantum computers could be used to create more personalised learning experiences by analysing large amounts of data to identify the most effective teaching methods for individual students. This could help to ensure that students are getting the support and guidance they need to succeed, regardless of their background or learning style.

Affordable tertiary education for all

The digital divide refers to the gap between those who have access to digital technologies and those who do not. This divide is particularly pronounced in underrepresented communities, where lack of access to technology can have serious consequences for business success.

Without access to digital tools and resources, entrepreneurs from underrepresented communities may struggle to compete with larger, more established businesses, and may struggle to access the resources they need to grow their businesses.

This can lead to a perpetuation of the economic disparities that already exist in these communities, and can make it even more difficult for entrepreneurs to break through and succeed. As such, addressing the digital divide is essential if we are to create a more equitable and inclusive business environment for everyone.

Closing the gap that the digital divide has created is vital for the future of business. Online courses dedicated to teaching entrepreneurs about future technologies can play a vital role in bridging the digital divide in underrepresented communities.

By providing access to cutting-edge tools and resources, we can help entrepreneurs from all backgrounds to compete on a more level playing field, regardless of their access to physical resources.

Additionally, we can provide entrepreneurs with the knowledge and skills they need to stay ahead of the curve as new technologies emerge, which can help to ensure that they are well-equipped to succeed in an increasingly digital world.

Our online course focuses on teaching underrepresented communities how to run successful businesses using the latest digital technologies. By providing access to this type of training and education, we can help to close the gap created by the digital divide and ensure that everyone has a fair shot at entrepreneurial success.

As we look to the future, it is clear that the potential for these technologies to transform education and entrepreneurship is only just beginning to be realised. With the addition of quantum computers to the mix, the possibilities for creating new and innovative learning experiences are truly endless. It is an exciting time to be involved in the world of education and entrepreneurship!
