Coursera, ISB tie up for courses on financial markets

This is the second MOOC launched by ISB, after their last open course on happiness

Open online education provider Coursera and Indian School of Business (ISB) have jointly launched four specialised courses on financial markets and investment strategy.

“We developed this course with Coursera to address the lack of financial knowledge and educate the average person about financial markets and financial instruments,” Vaidya Nathan of ISB said in a release issued here on Thursday.

Rick Levin, CEO of Coursera, said: “ISB’s new Specialisation will appeal to a mass audience not just in India but to our 19 million plus learners around the world, from working professionals in finance to anyone who would like to learn the basics of financial planning for personal or professional use.”

This is the second programme being offered by ISB along with Coursera after they had launched a course on happiness in November, 2014.
