Today, business and management courses have become one of the most sought after courses among learners across the world. And, although there are numerous management schools springing up almost every other day, getting quality management education remains accessible to very few – a gap that we aim to bridge by using technology. We are thrilled to welcome all learners- students, teachers, managers, employees or just an inquisitive learner from any field to our Massive Open Online Courses on edX. Here is your chance to become better managers, leaders and entrepreneurs and enhance your knowledge and skills about the business world!

“Part of my vision is that IIM Bangalore will have a much larger impact on society through its educational programmes being brought to people all over the world, and to those in India who might not be able to come to us for our various programmes.” -Dr. Sushil Vachani, Director, IIM Bangalore

IIM Bangalore has launched four online courses on edX – set to run starting in July 2015:

Statistics for Business-I

Statistics has revolutionized the fields of business, engineering, medicine and pure sciences. The first of this four-part series, this course makes you adept at number crunching using basic software like Excel. It deals with descriptive statistics and will simplify the complicated world of large numbers and data sets for you.

Innovation and IT Management

IT has helped transform every sphere of our life, for example – the way business is conducted, the way we interact with others, the way we shop, and the way we learn! However, it is not without challenges. In this course, you will learn how to best use IT to innovate, what challenges an organization faces while using IT to innovate, and the key decisions to be made to tackle these challenges.

Introduction to Operations Management

Operations Management forms a crucial part of every kind and size of organization, involved in any industry, be it a manufacturer or service provider, a for-profit or a not-for-profit organization. All of these aim to deliver the best quality products or services at the most economical costs. With this course, we will equip you with operational management skills that are crucial in managing the process of production and delivery of goods and services in the best possible ways.

Statistics for Business II

This is the second course in the Statistics series, and employs advanced statistical programming platforms like R to deal with large datasets.
