edX Welcomes Imperial College London

We are honored to announce that Imperial College London, a university dedicated to expanding the frontiers of knowledge in science, medicine, engineering and business, and translating their discoveries into benefits for society, has joined edX.

Imperial brings an expertise in research and teaching designed to tackle real world challenges in business to edX. Imperial also shares the edX mission to help learners everywhere gain the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in the evolving workplace.

The first courses are offered from Imperial College Business School. The series of courses, Essentials for MBA Success, has been developed to provide learners with the knowledge necessary to prepare for pursuing an MBA. The four-part series will cover math, finance, data analysis and accounting.

The courses are designed to both help learners already enrolled in MBA programs to identify any additional knowledge they may need to succeed in their degree and to provide learners considering an MBA a meaningful insight into the experience of a full MBA program.

The launch of the Imperial courses marks an exciting first step in our new partnership. We look forward to bringing additional Imperial courses to edX and continuing to provide our global community of learners with more opportunities to advance their careers and improve their lives.

Please join me in welcoming Imperial College London to edX!
