Today, Hanken is the only stand-alone business school in Finland.  The research and study environment is international, and there are campuses in Helsinki and Vaasa, Finland. Classroom instruction is conducted in both Swedish and English.

Research at Hanken is carried out within all departments, with a special focus on four interdisciplinary areas of strength: 1.) Competition Economics and Service Strategy, 2.) Financial Management, Accounting, and Governance, 3.) Responsible Organizing and 4.) Leading for Growth and Wellbeing. Hanken has also identified the following three high-potential research areas: Digitisation and Sustainability in Intellectual Property; Humanitarian and Societal Logistics; and Strategic and Entrepreneurial Praxis.

GBSN Scholarships: Gnowbe Microlearning Instructional Design Program Level 1 Certification

Introducing The World’s First Microlearning Instructional Design (MID) Accreditation Program

In 2016, there were 3.7 billion smartphone subscriptions worldwide, today there are nearly 6.3 billion and, by 2026, that number will top 7.5 billion. Smartphones have been revolutionizing many industries, including health, travel, and music. Yet, they have not yet made a major difference in education, especially in higher education and in environments where access to education has been low. Even when mobile learning is applied, it is often under-utilized relative to its potential, especially to support social (peer-to-peer) learning, experiential learning, gamification, and virtual/augmented reality. 

That is why GBSN and Gnowbe are partnering to empower up to 2,000 business and management professors with microlearning instructional design skills. Participants in the program will learn the principles of instructional design and how to apply that in a microlearning format for blended or asynchronous learning experiences. Upon successful completion of the programs, participants will earn a Microlearning Instructional Design (MID) Level 1 Certification, which can be applied to their LinkedIn profile.

Participants in the Gnowbe-GBSN program will also earn a certificate of completion from GBSN, which signals preparedness teaching specifically within the context of business and management schools. GBSN believes that the microlearning instructional design skills can be applied to increase inclusiveness and belonging, expand lifelong learning and executive education, generate additional value from case studies and simulations, make research more accessible to practicing managers, and increase the impact of business schools as catalysts for sustainable development. 

To be eligible for the Gnowbe-GBSN program, participants must be employed on a full-time or part-time basis by a GBSN member institution at the time of application. GBSN is particularly interested in applicants from developing countries and least developed countries.

Applications will be first come first serve on a rolling basis until all scholarships are taken. Please indicate you are from a GBSN member institution in the application form.

There is a FAQ section under the landing page applicants can refer to, which includes the commonly asked questions about the scholarship.

What is the Scholarship about?

To support creators globally, Gnowbe is launching $10 million in scholarships which entitle recipients to earn a Microlearning Instructional Design (MID) Level 1 Certification (worth $497!) for FREE. Recipients will learn the principles of instructional design and the know-how to apply that in a microlearning format for blended or asynchronous learning experiences.

Upon certificate completion, recipients will ‘pay-it-forward’ by equipping others on MID skills and techniques.

The Microlearning Instructional Design Accreditation program is designed for trainers, educators, and instructional designers who are looking to increase the value of their training programs for their clients through a new mode of content authoring known as Microlearning Instructional Design. Through this program, you will witness learning translate into application and business performance.

Are you ready for the next level of learning and design?

Join learning experts impacting innovation in instructional design and the future of education. With the rise of mobile microlearning, a new generation of instructional design calls for the most advanced and creative learning designers to rethink content authoring and disrupt learning design for modern learners. Learn more about the MID accreditation program and be empowered to rewrite history with pioneering instructional design frameworks curated by experts.
