After the great success with the two MOOCs developed last year, Critical Perspectives on Management with Professor Rolf Strom-Olsen and Understanding Economic Policymaking with Professor Gayle Allard, and having re-run both this year, IE is taking new and ambitious initiatives in this field:
Firstly, the course Understanding Economic Policymaking has been available since May in an on-demand format, meaning participants can complete it at their own pace. We are also offering the possibility to obtain a certificate if the learner fulfils the academic requirements and Coursera’s policy. And on top of that, the course is now also available in Spanish.
And secondly, we are developing a Marketing Strategy Specialization through Coursera. This specialization is made up of a number of MOOCs in the field of Marketing and counts on the participation of different IE professors. Most probably many of you, alumni and students, have been taught by some of these professors in your program: Ramon Diaz Bernardo, Martin Boehm, Ignacio Gafo, Eda Sayin, Shameek Sinha, Maite Aranzábal and Luis Rodríguez Baptista.
The specialization will be launched in January 2016, so if you are interested in knowing more about this initiative please stay tuned and visit https://www.coursera.org/ie regularly.
