If you register for alumni access using the link below, you will be able to both access the course and claim your certificate of completion, free of charge.

Alumni Access- Registration Link

Please note, if you register via the alumni access route, we will verify your alumni details and then pass on your contact details to Coursera. This may result in a short delay between registration and you receiving access to the course. If you would like to begin studying immediately, you can register with Coursera directly.

Please also note that the website for asynchronous courses on Coursera usually state that the course starts on the day that you look at the course. Despite this, there is no official date that you need to start or register for. The courses are designed to be started at any time. The course is self-guided and taught through videos, readings, quizzes, and discussion prompts, so you can go at your own pace.

If you're looking to find out more about an MBA—or want to refresh your business knowledge—this course is a great starting point.
