MOOCs as Management Training: Jack Welch Institute Partners with Udemy
The MOOC bandwagon has gone corporate. Strayer University's Jack Welch management training institute has partnered with Udemy to offer massive open online courses (MOOCs) in leadership development.
The courses—which will include leadership, people management, strategy, and operational excellence—are being developed in both instructor-led and self-paced versions. Unlike other MOOCs, courses from the Jack Welch institute will not be delivered free-of-charge.
The institute is planning on offering the courses to mid- and large-size companies worldwide, as well as to individuals, at a cost. The courses are being designed to deliver practical management training that has direct, on-the-job applicability.
