In a previous post I made an offer to others working on a No-Pay MBA. I said that if you reached out to me I would profile you on my blog. I’d like to formalize my offer, as I’ve since received many comments from people who are or have started working on MBA courses via MOOC. I’m excited that so many people have been inspired to try out the whole MOOC thing. But for the purposes of this post, I’m looking for people who are going for the whole enchilada, not just a few courses. That’s right.
It’s recruitment time for the No-Pay MBA.
In order to be eligible you must be committed to taking a full series of MBA courses via MOOC.
Ideally, you will have already taken several business courses and will be registered for or have plans to take more.
You will be willing to make a public commitment to reaching your goal. We all know that MOOC completion rates are abysmal. Making public your intention to finish not just one, but many courses can be extremely valuable in maintaining motivation. Going public is also a way to start building a network of people who recognize the value of your self-administered education.
If you are interested in being featured on this blog, please write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. In your message, include the following:

Finally, I would like to mention that this is a standing offer. You may be thinking about doing a No-Pay MBA but not yet have started. In that case, bookmark this page and come back to it when you are ready to officially begin.
