Learn Agile controls that get work done with confidence by using true transparency (actuals not estimates) and continuous improvement to ensure your people, process, and products deliver valuable, working solutions.

Computer Science: Programming with a Purpose
Princeton University via Coursera
We begin by introducing basic programming elements such as variables, conditionals, loops, arrays, and I/O. Next, we turn to functions, introducing key concepts such as recursion, modular programming, and code reuse. Then, we present a modern introduction to object-oriented programming.

Innovation and emerging technology: Be disruptive
Macquarie University via Coursera
‘Disruption’ has become a buzz word in the business world. But what is a disruptive change-maker? In this course you will learn how to deploy disruptive strategic thinking to develop or protect your organisation’s competitive advantage.

Weight Management: Beyond Balancing Calories
Emory University via Coursera
In this course, we will look at the root cause of obesity, as explained by the latest science. We will see how our food environment has evolved over the last half-century, and how it is altering our biology to over-consume calories and resist sustained weight loss.

Computers, Waves, Simulations: A Practical Introduction to Numerical Methods using Python
Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München via Coursera
This course provides you with a basic introduction how to apply methods like the finite-difference method, the pseudospectral method, the linear and spectral element method to the 1D (or 2D) scalar wave equation.

Mathematical Game Theory
Saint Petersburg State University via Coursera
This course will be useful for those who want to make choices based on mathematical calculations rather than relying on fate. Who is interested in world politics and at least once heard about the “Prisoner’s Dilemma”.

Time Value of Money

This course is applied and problem-based with assignments that are intentionally introductory and simpler than real-world applications you will confront when making day-to-day financial decisions and in more advanced courses.

In this course, we lay out a systematic process to make strategic decisions about innovative product or services that will help entrepreneurs, managers and innovators to avoid common pitfalls.

    Hello, I am kindly asking if there are medical free courses where you issue certificates upon completion?

  3. Demelash Ambushe

    1.I am looking for free (totally FREE) courses with certificate in Medicine and health sciences , how can I filter those?
    2. What does audit stands for in cost section of free courses? Thank you.

    • Saurabh Verma

      Audit stands for is that you can view the complete course(but you won’t get graded assignments and certification). You can only view the videos and practice ungraded questions (if any).
