of managers were better equipped to work on current job responsibilities after taking courses on Coursera

“I was looking for a way to brush up on my R-skills, and I always regretted not taking the more advanced financial analysis courses when I was at business school. This course covered both subjects so was perfect for me! My interest has been in market simulation, and I’ve already developed a comprehensive toolkit to analyze B2C retail markets. Now I’m thinking about how to simulate financial markets, and what problems I’d be solving if I managed to pull it off.”

“We were looking for scale, credibility, and something we didn’t have to build in-house. Coursera not only offers training from very prestigious institutions but also a service platform that allows you to do the kind of tracking that you want.”
