Hi All,

I need your help in determining what role MOOC plays as a part of your MBA application.

Can someone please help me get the answers to below questions?

1. Is it worth taking MOOC courses to improve your profile(especially when you are from an Over represented geography.)?
2. Should one spend huge dollars on these or should one take courses which are available for free(as in eDX)?
3. What courses should an IT guy take to show his/her interest in Product Management?
4. Does Six Sigma course really help you as an MBA applicant?

Please share any other details that could be helpful.

Thanks for your help!!

I don't think this will have a huge impact on your application. It can show interest and a proactive nature in preparing for your career goals but ultimately will not swing an otherwise weak application. It can serve as something they may help you stand out if you can highlight a burning passion in a specific area. I would avoid spending lots of money in this area
