An early adopter in the space among its peers, Wharton was among the first to embrace MOOCs upon Coursera’s launch in 2012. A Wharton Business Foundations course track is among the “Specializations” offered on the platform, with a paid certificate and capstone project — which applies knowledge gained to a problem presented by Snapdeal or Shazam — available to students. “The future’s coming, and we want to help shape it,” said Anne Trumbore, director of Wharton’s online learning initiatives. “That’s really one of the reason why we have jumped online and jumped online very early. Certainly, we want to bring what we’ve learned in online ed back to enhance the experience of the students in our degree programs. We don’t know what that looks like yet, but this is not separate from our core mission.”
