HBR AscendTM (Ascend) a digital learning resource from Harvard Business Review (HBR), is now available worldwide from EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO). Ascend provides trusted, real-world perspectives and practical advice to prepare college students for success in the workplace.
Created to bridge the gap between the typical academic curriculum and on-the-job soft skills that corporations now demand, Ascend helps graduating students excel by providing them with diverse perspectives and seasoned advice from top executives, thought leaders and academics — including expert input from HBR authors and editors. Ascend’s bite-sized modular content consists of engaging infographics, videos and podcasts, and short form articles will appeal to students used to consuming media (and social media) on the go.
Ascend offers application-oriented learning and real-world examples rather than theoretical scenarios in the following focus areas critical to students’ professional success: Jobs and Careers, Personal Growth, Managing and Leading, Working with Others and Being Happy at Work. Students can take advantage of the personal learning plans to customise learning pace and track progress.
Modules are presented in a format for quick learning. The contemporary design elements will appeal to young professionals. Unlimited access is granted to registered students and mobile users can access Ascend content anywhere at any time. Content is presented in small packets designed to be watched and read on all devices.
