Mumbai, India | Age 27
I live in Mumbai where I work in finance. I was looking for courses from top-rated universities that were relevant to my work, but I could not afford to apply to degree programs because of the high costs. Then I found edX, and decided to try Statistics 2.3x from BerkeleyX, an introductory statistics course on Inference.
This course included a section about decision making which can be used in both Business Management and Financial Appraisal. It will help me rate myself among the masses, just like many other professional courses.
I envision a day when certificates from online courses like Stat 2.3x will have high international value, yet be affordable and accessible to everyone. In the meantime, I see a positive impact on my career from the improved skills and knowledge gained in my field. EdX has brought high standards in education to the masses.
