MIT courses open to anyone who wants to try

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology may have its physical campus in Boston, but its reach and impact are global.

In San Diego, for example, several leading entrepreneurs have earned degrees from MIT. These include the co-founders of Qualcomm — Irwin Mark Jacobs and Andrew Viterbi; Peter Farrell, founder of ResMed; Farrell’s son Michael, a senior executive at ResMed; and venture capitalist Kevin Kinsella. In addition, hundreds more work in key positions in our technology and life sciences companies and research institutes.

But that is still just the United States. MIT now offers its classes on a global basis to anyone and everyone in any country in the world for free. Welcome to MITOpenCourseWare.
