McKinsey Launches Courses for Clients Through Its Open edX Platform

Through its new venture, McKinsey Academy, McKinsey & Co has started to offer a series of courses (“the McKinsey Management Program“) designed to provide participants with specific skill-sets in business.

Courses, taught by McKinsey practitioners and external business leaders, are designed to provide rising professionals with a practical, interactive and real-time learning experience.

Many of the technical innovations showcased at the Open edX-powered McKinsey Academy platform will be integrated into “McKinsey Academy is one of many important partners helping us improve our core platform and the learning experience for the entire edX community”, explained edX.

Some of them, like Polls and Surveys, are already being open-sourced.
