Video: Understanding modern business and organisations

By Viktor Dorfler - Posted on 6 February 2014

Dr Viktor Dörfler, from the Department of Management Science discusses Strathclyde Business School’s first free, Massive, Open, Online Course (MOOC)…

With the launch of Strathclyde Business School’s first MOOC, ‘Understanding modern business and organisations’, in March we want to give even more people the opportunity to gain an understanding of the evolving world of business.

Working in partnership with FutureLearn, the programme will bring business to life by highlighting themes which define the way in which organisations operate – knowledge, technology, globalisation and ethics.

The course culminates in an exploration of the complex phenomenon of the global financial crisis, which learners examine in the context of the four themes.

The programme follows the University of Strathclyde’s first MOOC, an ’Introduction to Forensic Science’ which was launched in January.

What are your thoughts on the evolving world of business? What issues would you like to see addressed in future MOOCs? Let us know in the comments below…
