Professional & Online Education
In addition to short courses led by IDSS faculty and offered through MIT Professional Education, IDSS has partnered with MITx to offer both a 7-week online course in data analytics and the comprehensive, 16-month MicroMasters Program in Statistics and Data Science.
Developed by eleven MIT faculty members at IDSS, this seven-week course, offered by MIT xPro, is especially designed for data scientists, business analysts, engineers, and technical managers looking to learn the latest theories and strategies to harness data.
