“One of the loveliest places on the Internet is edX.  I am proud to be a global learner.”

Khalid Raza lives in Pakistan where he is obtaining an MBA from the Virtual University of Pakistan.  He is using edX to prepare him for his upcoming economics classes.  He took the Challenges of Global Poverty from MITx.

“I have studied micro economics but I found edX totally different because it helps me to think at a macro level.EdX is really helping me learn macro economics in advance of my upcoming MBA course.”

For Khalid, the ability to study wherever he is has been invaluable.  “Once I was traveling with my cousin.  I had to submit my homework in my course, so I opened my laptop.  After some time, he asked me what I was doing.  When I told him, he almost refused to believe that I was studying from a university in the USA.  Before edX, we could not even think that a student from a small village could study from US teachers.”
