You've probably read about the explosive growth in education technology, including online courses. Stanford GSB is excited by the opportunities these technologies present, and is utilizing them to enhance the Stanford MBA experience. The GSB also has developed its first MOOC (massive open online course), titled The Finance of Retirement and Pensions.
We invite you to register for this free, eight-week course, which begins 14 October 2013. Taught by Stanford GSB Professor of Finance and pension expert Joshua Rauh, the course focuses on the financial concepts behind sound retirement plan investment and pension fund management and how to be a more informed decision maker on your own personal portfolio.
While participating in this MOOC can't replace the experience of the full-time MBA Program, it will provide exposure to Stanford GSB faculty. Taking the course will not help or hinder your chances of being admitted to the MBA Program.
And of course, we will keep you posted on upcoming online offerings.
