Demand for professionals skilled in data, analytics, and machine learning is exploding. A recent report by IBM and Burning Glass states that there will be 364K new job openings in data-driven professions by 2020 in the US. Out of those jobs, the toughest to fill are the Data Scientist/Advanced Analytics positions, which are the highest-paying jobs (over $100K per year in average). 39% of these positions require a degree higher than a bachelor’s.

Launching in the fall 2018, this new MicroMasters program in Statistics and Data Science will provide both the foundational knowledge essential to understanding the methods and tools used in data science, as well as hands-on training in data analysis and machine learning. Through a set of online courses developed by MIT faculty and delivered on edX, you will learn, implement, and experiment with data analysis techniques and machine learning algorithms. This program will prepare you to go after the highest paying positions within the data science field.

Anyone can enroll in a MicroMasters program. There is no application process. You will complete a set of graduate-level courses from MIT and then take a virtually-proctored exam to earn your MicroMasters, an academic credential that will demonstrate your proficiency in data science or accelerate your path towards an MIT PhD or a Master's at other universities.
