Free Online Course Providers, Aug 31, 2016
Pros - Nothing! It's a worthless credential.
Cons - It deludes the student into thinking that he/she now has an MBA
Pros - Free, fully-licensed MBA with top-notch course content if you are accepted and you can work through the courses anywhere on what works with your schedule.
Cons - No professors or TAs, meant for self-getters.
I had been thinking about an MBA for a while and had studied and taken my GMAT and even applied to a few top schools when I found out about Smartly and its innovative education platform and approach to higher education that no longer puts the incredible financial pressure onto the students. While it is extremely selective, it expands the market for potential MBA students to those of us who were delaying or dreaming about it because of money, work, life and has been an amazing experience so far. The amount of material taught and retained through its bite-sized, quiz-like platform is really surprising and I can't wait to see what's planned next for Smartly's future.
