edX and Boston University Questrom School of Business Launch Fully Online MBA
July 23, 2019 | edX team
edX is pleased to announce the launch of an online Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Boston University Questrom School of Business. The program is designed specifically for online learners who seek to advance their management careers in today’s global economy, providing a comprehensive, engaging, and integrated experience centered on the themes that drive business in the 21st century. The BU Questrom MBA program is ranked in the Top 50 MBA programs according to U.S. News and World Report rankings. It is the first online MBA available on edX.org, and is disruptively priced at $24,000. According to a 2018 survey by the Financial Times, MBA grads nearly double their pre-MBA salary within three years of completing the degree.
This new Master’s degree is the latest program to launch following edX’s October 2018 announcement of disruptively priced and top-ranked online Master’s degree programs available on edX.org. Master’s degrees on edX are unique because they are stacked degree programs with a MicroMasters® program component. A MicroMasters program is a series of graduate-level courses that provides learners with valuable standalone skills that translate into career-focused advancement, as well as the option to use the completed coursework as a stepping stone toward credit in a full Master’s degree program.
We are excited to build upon our partnership with BU, which has been a partner since 2013. BU was one of the first partners to launch a MicroMasters program, and offers programs in Digital Product Management and Digital Leadership. The online MBA will be stacked from a new MicroMasters program that is forthcoming.
“We’ve recognized the transformative potential of edX for some time,” said Boston University President Robert A. Brown. “With the online MBA, we’re seizing the initiative to offer a major degree for which we believe there is global demand. Higher education must evolve in a fast-changing world. We aim to lead in this evolution.”
