MOOC in business management, operation management, onboarding, strategy management, behaviour and organisational analysis

I always recommend people to opt for  some MOOC courses as they are really helpful. In fact, they are much better than many unrecognized MBAs in India particularly.
MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) are the courses available from various institutes, including world’s top universities free of the cost. These courses are usually about 6- 8 weeks, based on collaborative learning and through videos. I have enrolled in a couple of them and successfully completed fewer. They were good and I enjoyed them too.
In this article, I am focusing on free online management courses such as strategic management, innovations, corporate social responsibilities, entrepreneurship, family business, behavior management, project management and so on. Please enrol for at least a course and I am sure, if you engage yourself properly, you will gain a lot of knowledge and skills.

Forensic Accounting and Fraud Examination

Understanding and combating fraud, nefarious financial activities associated with organized crime and terrorist financing is a multidimensional task. Some fraudsters are characterized as good persons making a bad decision that appear out of character for the individual. At the same time, there are fraud schemes and criminal organizations established solely for the purpose of defrauding their victims to accumulate massive amounts of cash and other assets through activities like systematic credit card and healthcare fraud. In this course, you will develop the skills to identify accidental versus predator fraudsters.
