Many BGS students have expressed interest in learning about aspects of business as part of their preparation for various careers. Wharton conducts a series of Coursera courses in business foundations.
The courses are free for people who don’t want or need any course credit and simply want exposure to business principles and practices. However, some people may wish to receive credit for individual courses or for a certificate (6 courses including a capstone project). Coursera estimates it takes 4-5 weeks to complete each course.
The cost per month of Coursera is $79. BGS can reimburse students for up to 7 months of Coursera who show proof of completion (*details below).
If you take any of the courses (whether for credit or not), we’d be interested to hear what you think of them.
*Tiffany Brooks (firstname.lastname@example.org) can help with reimbursement. Reimbursement will be processed via Concur and require the following documentation:
- Proof of course completion plus credit received
- Proof of payment, which needs to be credit card receipt showing payment for this course
- Completed statement of Business Connection
Request for reimbursement must be submitted within 60 days of course completion/credit received. Approval of submissions past the deadline is at the discretion of the program.
