MOOCs for Entrepreneurs (5 ECTS)

As a part of StartUp School Work & Study for Entrepreneurs you can earn credit points by accomplishing selected MOOCs from top universities all over the world.


A Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) is an online course aimed at unlimited participation and open access via the web. In addition to traditional course materials, such as filmed lectures, readings, and problem sets, many MOOCs provide interactive courses with user forums or social media discussions to support community interactions among students, professors, and teaching assistants, as well as immediate feedback to quick quizzes and assignments.
