Northwestern Debuts 2 New MOOCs, First MOOC Specialization

Northwestern University will launch two new massive open online courses (MOOCs), one in healthcare and one in business, this spring, as well as its first MOOC specialization.

The university has offered 11 MOOCs since partnering with Coursera in 2013, and will be offering three others this spring along with the new classes.

Beginning March 30, Scaling Operations: Linking Strategy and Execution is a five-week course on building and evaluating "the 'operating system' of a firm to maximize value," according to a news release.

Career 911: Your Future Job in Medicine and Health Care is targeted at high school students, recent graduates and individuals considering a transition into healthcare careers. It will offer strategies and tips for getting jobs in the field and will cover topics such as resume and cover letter writing, successful interviewing and professional networking.

The specialization, Content Strategy for Professionals in Organizations, will include two courses and a final project. Upon completion, students will receive a specialization certificate.

More information about Northwestern's MOOCs is available at coursera.org.
