The Academic Financial Trading Platform (AFTP), the first massive open online course (MOOC) platform dedicated exclusively to business education, launched courses last month to a growing community of Indian MBA students and executives, writes Manash Pratim Gohain for The Times of India.

Funded by PMC Group, the AFTP was founded in 2011 by two Carnegie Mellon university professors, Raj Chakrabarti (systems engineering) and Anisha Ghosh (financial economics), with the aim of delivering an integrated curriculum of business courses to interested students anywhere in the world.

AFTP faculty include professors at several of the world's top business schools and economics departments, including Carnegie Mellon University, the London School of Economics and the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business.
