"As refugees, we are deprived of basic rights like education. I have missed out on many years of my education, and Coursera gave me the platform to compensate for all those missed years. I completed the Creative Writing Specialization from Wesleyan University, which helped me improve my writing skills and get one step closer towards my dream of becoming a writer."
Coursera was founded by Daphne Koller and Andrew Ng in 2012 with a vision of providing life-transforming learning experiences to learners around the world. Today, Coursera is a global platform for online learning and career development that offers anyone, anywhere, access to online courses and degrees from leading universities and companies. Coursera received B Corp certification in February 2021, which means that we have a legal duty not only to our shareholders, but to also make a positive impact on society more broadly, as we continue our efforts to reduce barriers to world-class education for all.
113 million learners and more than 7,000 campuses, businesses, and governments have come to Coursera to access world-class learning—anytime, anywhere.
