Lund University is visiting the Coursera office today to kick off their induction into the Coursera partner community! As one of Scandinavia’s largest institutions for education and research, Lund University brings Courserians a wealth of knowledge in areas including Humanities, Law and Science.
The university’s inaugural offerings cater to learners across disciplines:
- For the industrious, the “Introduction to European Business Law” course will provide learners with the fundamental tools they need to understand the laws that govern business in the European Union. This course is a solid foundation for anyone looking to understand the relationship between law and business in the EU. (Nov, 2014)
- For the environmentally conscious, “Greening the Economy: Lessons from Scandinavia” will be offered by Lund’s esteemed International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics (IIIEE). This course will explore how individuals, businesses, cities, and nations can promote an eco-friendly economy. (Jan, 2015)
- For those interested in health, well-being and human rights, the “Global Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR)” course will discuss this topic in the context of current global policy issues, such as sustainability, gender equality, social justice, democracy, and the rights perspective. (Feb, 2015)
Lund is one of Europe’s oldest universities, founded in 1666. Since its founding, the university has grown to 47,000 students in more than 280 different programs offering more than 2,250 courses.
We are looking forward to extending the offerings of such a distinguished university to Coursera’s community. Please join us for the launch of Lund’s first course “Introduction to European Business Law”, starting this fall.
Courserians, please “Välkomna” (Swedish for “Welcome”) Lund University!
