I was just wondering do courses provided by companies such as coursera or udacity have any value??
I am planning to join this course "An Introduction to Marketing" which is provided by Wharton and they do provide a certificate..
Is it really worth it i mean can i include it in the education section and will it have an impact on the adcom ???
Any response is highly appreciated..
Although I do not have experience with this sort of a thing but I'll go out on a limb and put in my two cents. I don't think it would have too big an impact. Yes, it would be an add on to your profile but I don't think it would be a big deal, unless you go on to use what you learnt from Coursera, apply it in the real world and let the adcom know about it.
I'd me more interested in finding out if you applied what you learnt in Coursera. If not, it might just come across as a gimmick to try and impress the adcom.
