        Hi there,

        I just tested the practice questions and you are right the correct answer is 6%, but it's also what have had marked as correct in our system. It hasn't been changed since the 18th, so I'm not sure what happened when you took the practice questions.

        Let me know if you can replicate the issue and what operating system and browser (including versions) you're using since that will help us narrow down a potential bug.

        Cheers,
        Meg

            Hi Amit,

            Thanks for the suggestion! One of our older courses is on International Finance: http://www.mruniversity.com/courses/international-finance

            We don't currently have any other finance courses planned, but it's certainly a possibility!

            Cheers,
            Meg

              Hi Swapnil,

              This course is still in production. One of the professors for the course was not able to continue filming, so we're working hard on finding a second instructor.

              Thanks for your interest!

              Cheers,
              Meg

                Hey there,

                Thanks for your question! We don't currently have a Marxian economics course in the production pipeline, but one of our other older courses (Economic History of the Soviet Union) touches on some Marxian topics. Here's a link to the section on Labor Theory of Value: http://www.mruniversity.com/courses/economic-history-soviet-union/introduction-labor-theory-value

                Cheers,

                  That's a great suggestion, John! We're in the very early phases of a website redesign and will at least get partway there with a mobile-optimized site. But I'd love to see us do native apps as well!

                  Cheers,

                    Hi Rajeev,

                    MRU is not an accredited education provider, so a formal degree is not something we can offer.

                    Thanks for the feedback!

                    Cheers,
                    Meg

                        Hi Kristine,

                        I wanted to let you know that some videos currently in early production will be taught by a female economist. Our current Office Hours series is taught by our instructional designer, Mary Clare Peate.

                        A couple of our older courses (Mexico's Economy: Current Prospects and History, and Economic History of the Soviet Union) were taught by women as well.

                        Please let me know if you have other feedback, or if there's anything we can do to support you in your teaching. You can comment here or get in touch with me directly at meg [at] mruniversity [dot] com.

                          Hi Lorena,

                          That's a great suggestion! We're in the early stages of a website redesign to improve and personalize the learning experience. We'll take this suggestion into account.

                          Cheers,
                          Meg

                            We'll be covering economic terms only in an upcoming course. Stay tuned!

                                  Hi there! Our Principles of Microeconomics course is available with French subtitles on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9uUIUqhrSQ&list=PL-uRhZ_p-BM4XnKSe3BJa23-XKJs_k4KY

                                  We're working on adding French subtitles for other courses as well. :)
