The MicroMasters® program in Data, Economics, and Design of Policy (DEDP) equips learners with the practical skills and theoretical knowledge to tackle some of the most pressing challenges around the world. 

Through eight courses taught by MIT faculty, learners will gain a strong foundation in microeconomics, development economics, probability, and statistics, and engage with cutting-edge research in the field. The program is unique in its focus on running randomized evaluations to assess the effectiveness of social programs and its emphasis on hands-on skills in data analysis. 

All course content is available online for free. Learners who wish to earn certificates in the courses can pay a fee to take proctored exams. Learners who complete three core and two elective courses will earn a DEDP MicroMasters program credential in their respective track and become eligible to apply to the on-campus master’s in DEDP at MIT and other graduate programs at participating global pathway schools.
