What is a MicroMasters credential? How does a MicroMasters program advance my career and accelerate a Master’s Degree?
Along with 14 of our global university partners, edX launched the MicroMasters credential, a new category of Master’s-level online education to advance careers in the most in-demand fields—from UX and Artificial Intelligence, to Business Management and Supply Chain Management—while also offering a pathway to credit to an accelerated Master’s degree.
Want to learn more about these new programs and how they can advance your career? This Wednesday, October 5th from 1-2:30pm ET, ask your questions about our MicroMasters programs with edX CEO and MIT Professor Anant Agarwal and Dr. Chris Caplice, Director of MITx MicroMasters in Supply Chain Management. Dr. Caplice’s courses make up the first MicroMasters credential to be offered at MIT and will be the first to accept blended Master’s students beginning in late 2017.
AMA means “Ask Me Anything.” Questions about our MicroMasters programs, career advancement, online education, and more, are fair game. (Current students, please note that the AMA is not intended to be a Q&A solely about the course itself.)
