Im considering enrolling in a MOOC to improve my quant skills and hopefully show Admissions officers at my target schools that although my quant score on the GMAT might not be high, i am working to improve it.

Does anyone have any suggestions for good courses or if this will even be worth my time? Honestly my main goal in this is to impress Admissions officers and show that I am working on one of my weaknesses.

I plan to go into brand management and apply at Wisconsin, Purdue (krannert) , Texas A&M (Mays), BYU (Marriot), South Carolina (moore) and Indiana (kelley)

Hi there!

Great to hear that you're looking into options on how to offset a lower GMAT (quant). The order of options (most appealing to least) are as follows: retake the GMAT with a higher quant, take a set of analytic courses to demonstrate your ability to perform at an MBA level, or take a couple MOOCs. Obviously, there are constraints such as time (especially if you're looking at R2) and finances. If you're at a point where MOOCs are you're only option, it's definitely worth your time. As far as recommendations on which ones, just find ones are reputable and relevant to your cause. For instance, analytic courses would include: statistics, microeconomics, and finance/accounting. Hope this information helps. Feel free to check out our free resources to get you started for your R2 preparation. Best of luck this season!

I wanted to add a recent podcast to this thread, in case other applicants have the same question. I got Admissions Directors from Cornell Johnson, CEIBS and IMD to give their opinion on this issue:

In short, your best way to show off your quant skills is to retake the GMAT and get a higher score - especially on quant section / IR if that's possible. There are many other ways you can show quant skills i.e. through your work experience and recommendations. If you do choose to take online courses, focus on well-known b-school brands (like HBX, Wharton, etc) or, which is required by many top business schools. Customize your courses to your career goals and your target school's curriculum.
