This course provides a concise overview and non-technical explanation of the Omniverse and Metaverse – a shared virtual space that integrates various virtual, augmented, and actual realities. While futurists have been predicting and describing this concept for decades, interest and investment in this platform have recently exploded. Facebook has changed its very name to Meta – as in Metaverse – to reflect its pivot from a social media company to a virtual space company. Other tech companies, big and small, have announced ambitious plans to enable people to access digital environments and experiences through different devices. While sometimes perceived as science fiction, the metaverse is no entertainment gimmick. A growing consensus is that it will be the successor to the mobile Internet, and fundamentally transform the Internet, and perhaps even reality itself. You’ll walk away with a foundational understanding of how the metaverse is transforming the modern business world, and how accountants can position themselves for success in this emerging economic digital dimension.
