The power of online education, and one man’s path to become a world business leader

International council for open and distance educationx1

After discovering massive open online courses (MOOCs) and their potential for self development, Ankit designed the ‘envisioning a 21st century global manager’ project after two months of brain-storming in early 2012.

He spent the next two years (May 2012- June 2014) completing a series of online courses and undertaking other activities with the aim of stepping closer towards accomplishing his dream.

An engineering graduate from the Technical University of Denmark, Ankit returned to his homeland of India with great aspirations of becoming a global leader. Described as a ‘doer’, it was his long term dream to be a manager. Those with similar aspirations may simply undertake an MBA. However, financial reasons and the ability to do something differently were the drivers for Ankit to design and take on his own two-year project.
