Game-changers for Sustainable Business Education? Coursera and edX
We are living in history-making times. Thanks to “edtech” partnerships like Coursera and edX, free, world-class university courses in a wide range of topics are now offered online. And, the potential for educating people in the ways of more sustainable business thinking (among many other topics) – and for students at any level – is incredible!
