The Stanford Graduate School of Business is getting into the MOOC game. Its first foray into the market for “massive open online courses” is focused on retirement finance and pension policy and will be launched Oct. 14.
“We’re living in a time when more and more people are responsible for their own retirement,” says Ranga Jayaraman, associate dean and chief information officer at the Stanford B-school. “Yet many find their retirement is not secure.”
B-school seems a natural place for MOOCs, but I suppose the story here is that Wharton *and* Stanford have both taken this approach.
