Smartly Debuts a Free MBA

Smartly Debuts a Free MBA

MBA ON THE GO: The first student cohort in Smartly’s free, online MBA program begins class this week. After opening applications earlier this year, Smartly received thousands of submissions, accepting only a selective 7 percent. The interactive click-and-continue coursework can be completed on a myriad of devices, from laptops to smartphones. The program is recognized by the Washington D.C. Office of the State Superintendent of Education. Smartly says it will accept students to additional cohorts later this year.

In 2013, a group of ex-Rosetta-Stone employees founded Pedago, the company behind Smartly. In the past few years it’s partnered with a series of companies and business schools. For instance, Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business uses Smartly to teach incoming MBA students the fundamentals of accounting, statistics, economics and finance—all before they step foot on campus.
