The bad news about the modern world is that, thanks to tech, things are changing so fast you're almost certainly going to have to keep updating your skills throughout your career if you want to be successful. The good news? Thanks to tech it's also easier - and cheaper - to do that than ever before.

I am talking, obviously, about the incredible wealth of free or close to free online courses out there. You can already learn just about anything, from Renaissance art to programming in Python, via MOOC (for the uninitiated that's Massive Open Online Course). But as rich and varied as these online offerings already are, Dhawal Shah, founder of online learning portal Class Central, insists we're just getting started.

He recently shared a whopping 600 new courses that have launched just in the last four months alone on Quartz. There's everything from an art history class about an English castle to a deep dive into space shuttle engineering. But here for business-minded Inc.com readers are all the business classes (minus the foreign language options, though French, Russian, Chinese, and Spanish speakers can check out the complete list).
