Have you ever wondered what it might be like to earn your business degree online? Maybe you've always wanted to try a course or two, but can't justify spending the money on something you may not like or value. Many colleges and universities offer free courses online that could be useful in assessing whether or not to pursue the alternate training option.
There's a catch though. You won't get credit for the course. In addition, you may not have the same access to school resources that paying students have. For example, by registering for a free course online, you may just have access to an online database of reading materials supplemented with one-size-fits-all testing banks. What it will do, however, is give you a sense of whether you think you'll be able to handle the time and commitment required.
To find out what's available for free, online courses, contact the college or university of your choice and ask the question. Any information about free courses is probably right on their website. Another option is auditing a course. This is especially useful in the classroom setting. Auditing a course means to simply sit in on a few classes to see what it's all about. You won't receive any credit for it, but it is yet another way to help you determine if the course/program/institution is right for you.
