The courses are FREE. NO strings attached.

NOTE: Will NOT get you a degree NOR formal credits but will surely explain and clarify important marketing and finance concepts for FREE. Current classes available already online.

OPTIONAL
For $95, you MAY get a "Verified Certificate". NOT REQUIRED to take the courses

NEW Courses start on April 6 and repeat every two months. Complete them on your schedule.

These free courses do NOT replace formal college education but will definitely be valuable to learn some of the basic concepts. Especially, for free. Example, an engineering manager who needs to know basic finance to do department budgets will benefit from them. They will help reduce getting his or her chain jerked by the finance folks.

These courses are taught by regular Wharton professors...nod:
Please IGNORE the MBA trolls TDing these FREE courses. I am NOT affiliated with Coursera NOR Wharton in any way. Just an SDer sharing good info.

From the providers:

"Today, we're excited to announce the addition of THE WHARTON MBA FOUNDATION SERIES, offered by The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, into Coursera's course catalog.

Whether you're looking to explore accounting or build a foundation for future academic or career pursuits, these courses, taught by faculty from one of the top business schools in the world, can provide you with the fundamentals of business and management.

The series kicks off with An Introduction to Financial Accounting on September 16th, followed by introductory courses on Operations Management, Marketing, and Corporate Finance through the fall. Join the more than 695,000 students from all around in the world who have already enrolled in a Wharton course, as well as explore business-related offerings from our other university partners.

As with other Coursera offerings, you can take all of the courses in the series for free. If you're especially interested in putting them on your resume, you can earn a Verified Certificate that shows you've mastered each course's material.

Check out the four exciting courses below. We look forward to seeing you in class this semester!"

I agree. I took the same accounting and loved it. His virtual students were lively.
