A degree is necessary to secure a graduate role, but employers are looking for much more.

The key is showing a potential employer what you can offer BEYOND your credentials.

This is not a standard business course on writing job applications and practicing interview techniques.

We’ve thought deeply about what actually matters to employers and how you can develop the skills and qualities they value.

This course will show you how to take your experiences, extract what you’ve learned from them and present them in a way that would be attractive to an employer. 

We’ll help you develop your employability - the capabilities, skills, and personal attributes that make you attractive to an employer - so that you can successfully navigate the recruitment process and be effective in your job.

You’ll hear from:

  • Employers discussing what they value when hiring new graduates
  • Current students who have maximized their university experience
  • Graduates who have transitioned successfully into the workplace

We’ll also share our knowledge and the perspectives of other experts in this area.

We’ll let you in on a secret. Innovation isn’t confined inside the walls of research labs swarming with PhDs. More often than not, innovation is about ordinary people solving problems that matter to them personally. This could be you.

First, think about what you need. Next, find out whether others want the same thing. If they do, you can start a venture – for profit or non-profit - to supply others with the novel product or service you first developed for yourself.

The examples of user innovation are infinite. A surfer created the GoPro to take “selfies” while surfing. A student came up with Dropbox after forgetting his flash drive. Two broke entrepreneurs rented out their living room to help pay rent, and Airbnb was born. They’ll share their paths to startup success.

Taught by Eric von Hippel, the founding scholar of user innovation, this course will help you think about what problems you should choose to solve and how to share your innovations with others.

You can innovate.

¿Quieres ser capaz de valorar de forma analítica a Cristiano Ronaldo o a Fernando Torres usando el Proceso Analítico Jerárquico (AHP), método empleado a nivel mundial para la valoración de todo tipo de activos?

El mundo del deporte mueve miles de millones de euros, muchos de los cuales se invierten en los traspasos de deportistas entre equipos. La valoración de futbolistas es tema complejo en el que influyen muchas variables con relaciones complejas.

En el curso aprenderás a utilizar herramientas que permiten seleccionar de una forma objetiva el mejor jugador para una posición dada o estimar el valor del traspaso de un jugador utilizando las cantidades pagadas por jugadores similares en operaciones recientes.

El contenido del curso es el siguiente:

Unidad 1: El mundo del deporte y la valoración
Unidad 2: El proceso analítico jerárquico (AHP)
Unidad 3: Aplicación de AHP a la valoración de deportistas
Unidad 4: Ejemplos

Este curso está actualmente en modo autónomo o “self-paced”. ¿Qué significa esto? Que puedes empezarlo cuando quieras y seguirlo a tu ritmo ya que no hay fecha prevista de cierre y cada 6-8 semanas se generarán certificados a aquellos que lo hayan superado. Por otro lado los profesores participarán algo menos en los foros, seguirás teniendo soporte por su parte pero es posible que tarde algo más en contestar tus dudas.

This course is taught in Spanish with English subtitles.

This course introduces you to the main elements of a good “science of delivery case study and teaches you how to plan your research, conduct interviews, and organize your writing.    

The “science of delivery” begins with a simple observation. We often have a vision of the right policies or strategies for improving health, safety, and economic well being, but the real problem is getting things done. Even a simple policy intervention such as child vaccination requires much more than nurses and a stock of vaccine to be effective.

Case studies are a vital tool for sharing insight about the how of policy implementation and institutional reform. They trace the steps taken to produce results, show solutions people have devised to address anticipated challenges and overcome unanticipated obstacles. Case studies help us think about how to adapt approaches so that they work in different contexts.

This social science course is most suitable for:

  • Practitioners who want to document and analyze their efforts to implement a program or build a new institution
  • Researchers who want to trace how programs achieved results
  • Graduate students who want an introduction to one type of case study method

No certificates, statements of accomplishment, or other credentials will be awarded in connection with this course.
