edX’s MicroMasters successful initiative celebrates this September its first anniversary with the extension of the program to 39 subjects from 24 international universities. The University of California, Berkeley is the latest university partner to join the MicroMasters. Its first course will be Marketing Analytics, and it is scheduled for October 3.
“MicroMasters programs –which are free to try– help to bridge the knowledge gap between higher education and the workplace by offering deep knowledge and credentials in the most in-demand fields, with a pathway to credit in an on-campus program,” explained Anant Agarwarl, CEO at edX.
Top employers, including IBM, GE, Hootsuite, Boeing, Bloomberg, Walmart, Adobe, Ford, PwC and others are endorsing MicroMasters programs.
