    Take once exclusive college classes for free.

    The Wharton MBA Foundation Series consists of four core business courses — marketing, operation and information management, accounting and finance. Each of the four courses are set to begin on Coursera within the next few weeks and last from six to 10 weeks.

    “These classes are highly representative of the core required classes in the MBA,” Managing Director of the Innovation Group Don Huesman said.

    The idea began when several Wharton professors requested to teach these introductory level courses on Coursera. Huesman said that the University thought it best to link these classes together as part of the Foundation Series.

    I don't quite get how it works ? Can you actually earn a MBA through Coursera or do you use it to get credits towards those actual universities ?

    You get certified (if you pay the signature fee $50 per class) for each class if you want, but you can just take them for free.
    I think its a find. Take the same foundation classes for the mba and get a certificate.

    No credit, non-transferable...useless from a degree standpoint.
    Public Relations ploy is all it is.
