US offers free online course to improve business, entrepreneurship knowledge
The US Department of State has offered a free online course for the non-native English speakers interested in improving their English language skills, and knowledge of business and entrepreneurship.
The US government is sponsoring the Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) as part of its Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) 2020 programming, said the US Embassy in Dhaka on Tuesday (Dec 1).
Participants may enroll in this six-module course until December 18, 2020.
From identifying an opportunity to planning a persuasive pitch, this course will guide you step-by-step through the basic elements of starting up a new business.
Through case studies, selected readings, and video lectures, you will learn how to use market research to identify risks and opportunities. The participants will also learn how to read and develop a business plan and how to find investors and financial support. Finally, they will examine strategies for making a pitch to present your business concept.
The MOOC is self-paced, meaning participants study independently, without facilitation from an instructor. It is offered by the Online Professional English Network (OPEN), a US Department of State initiative, and is administered by FHI 360, a U.S.-based nonprofit human development organization.
After enrolling, participants may log in at any time — day or night — to access the course. All six modules of coursework must be completed by December 28, 2020. Participants who complete the required activities with a score of 70% or higher will receive a digital badge and certificate.
This “English for Business and Entrepreneurship Syllabus” MOOC is designed for non-native English-speaking entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs interested in improving their language skills and knowledge of business and entrepreneurship.
