We are honored to announce that Indiana University (IU), a university dedicated to delivering world-class research and higher learning, has joined edX.
Founded in 1820, IU now enrolls over 110,000 students from around the globe and offers more than 500 academic programs, including top 10 programs in business, public affairs, health sciences, information systems, education, and the arts.
We are thrilled to share that our partnership kicks off with two top-ranked, fully online Master’s degree programs on edX from IU’s Kelley School of Business – the Master of Science in Accounting and the Master of Science in IT Management degrees. The launch of these new programs, in highly in-demand fields, comes at a time when the workplace is changing more rapidly than ever before, and employers are in need of highly skilled talent, especially in the fields most most impacted by advances in technology.
The curriculum for the Master of Science in Accounting degree includes courses in financial and managerial accounting, financial statement analysis, finance, tax planning and strategy, auditing and data analytics-based decision-making.
The curriculum for the Master of Science in IT Management will prepare learners from both business and tech backgrounds to meet current market needs for chief information officers and other tech visionaries. They will learn how to analyze, design and develop information systems, how to lead IT management and strategy and how to use data and visualizations to support managerial decisions.
Like most Master’s degrees on edX, both of these programs will offer learners the option to start with a MicroMasters ® program that can count toward their full master’s degree and is also a valuable standalone credential.
A MicroMasters program is a series of graduate-level courses that provides learners with valuable stand-alone 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.
Learners will be able to engage with the curriculum right away when considering whether to apply, or to strengthen their application for either Kelley degree.
The launch of these two Master’s degree programs marks an exciting start to our ongoing partnership and we look forward to sharing news of the corresponding MicroMasters programs for both of the degrees offered by IU.
Please join me in welcoming the Indiana University to edX!
