HEC Montréal offering free online courses through EDUlib

November 7, 2012

On October 22, HEC Montréal launched EDUlib, a platform offering free online university courses, and a first in Quebec. On November 12, EDUlib will begin offering an introductory marketing course as its first course. 2 other courses in finance and economics will be added in winter and spring 2013, respectively. The selection of online courses will continue to grow to meet demand. To date, visitors to the EDUlib site have been from about 50 different nations, although the majority of them are Canadian. More than 1,000 individuals have already signed up for the marketing course. By November 5, more than 950 people had also enrolled in a course on understanding financial statements, and another 650 in a course on economic issues and politics. If participants pass an EDUlib course, they will receive a confirmation that they have successfully completed the course requirements; however, they will not receive any university credits or a diploma.
