University of London
The University of London is unlike many other universities. It consists of 18 self-governing Colleges and 9 specialist research Institutes. The Colleges are considered universities in their own right; they set their own entrance criteria for their courses and they offer their own services to students. Some now also have their own degree awarding powers. All students from all the Colleges and Institutes are also University of London students, making them part of a community of over 170,000 students and giving them access to many services in London.
We were proud to be asked to design, research and produce 2 MOOC’s (Massive open online courses): Professional skills for international business, launched on the 9th January 2017 and Management Skills for International business, launched on 16th January 2017 on the Coursera platform. Working closely with our colleagues at University of London we produced a range of videos, executive interviews, research and assessment materials at pre MBA levels.
A few months after launch we are delighted to have seen over 5000 students enrol on the two modules.
