Has your career hit a plateau? Looking to make more money? Well, now you can climb the corporate ladder for only $79 thanks to Coursera. They’re ready to help you boost your career with business knowledge that will give you the edge to get ahead.

No matter what industry you work in or where you are in your career, a basic understanding of financial, marketing and decision-making principles will help you achieve your professional goals. Coursera makes it easy to learn those fundamentals without the high expense of business school.

Here’s how it works: sign up for a free trial to sample their “Business Fundamentals Course.” You’ll receive a comprehensive introduction to the practice of management through the lens of four key disciplines: accounting, finance, marketing and organizational behavior. In each course, you’ll analyze real business cases. And, in the final Capstone Project, you’ll apply what you’ve learned to develop a holistic solution to a real-world business dilemma.

This 5-course program can help you achieve the next step in your career no matter what size company you work for, even if you’re running your own company. You can work at your own pace and be done in less than a month. Or, you can subscribe for six months (at $79 a month) for more thorough learning (Financial aid is also available).

The great part: like a physical course, you’ll receive a certificate to highlight on your LinkedIn page and resume, giving you a leg up with employers. Even better, now you can see if it’s right for you with a free trial.
