About the webinar:

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 this year in the US alone. Data scientists bring value to organizations across industries because they are able to solve complex challenges with data and drive important decision-making processes. 

To help train for this in-demand field, MIT's Institute for Data, Systems, and Society (IDSS) has created the MITx MicroMasters® Program in Statistics and Data Science.

In this 60-minute engaging and interactive webinar, you will:

  • Learn more about the courses in the program.
  • Find out how these courses could bring you to MIT or other universities around the world for a graduate program.
  • Hear about the exclusive benefits for learners who upgrade to the MicroMasters Program track.
  • Get real-time answers to your questions.
