Business professors also say that free courses can help prepare applicants for business school. Excelsior College in Albany, N.Y., recently announced a $10,000 undergraduate degree with a curriculum that draws largely from other institutions’ free online courses. Such news may prompt resourceful graduate students to try to piece together a degree for free, but current or prospective M.B.A. students shouldn’t see free courses as a replacement for a full paying degree, business professors say. What students can do, professors say, is use free courses to supplement or prepare themselves for their degrees.
