MicroMasters®Program in Digital Leadership

**The Digital Leadership and Digital Product Management MicroMasters® Programs, available on edX.org between 2017 and 2021, are no longer offered at this time. The Digital Transformation Leadership MicroMasters® program is a re-imagined version of the two programs and combines the 5 core courses from both of those programs.**

What’s a MicroMasters® program?

A MicroMasters® program is a series of higher-level courses derived from Universities master’s programs and endorsed by companies for relevant job advancement and deeper learning in a specific subject area. Students verifying, completing, and passing all courses in a MicroMasters® program receive an edX MicroMasters® credential, which can count towards Master’s degree credit if the learner applies to the university offering the credential and is accepted.

MicroMasters® program offerings allow learners to demonstrate capacity and mastery of material for a given career area, and enable edX partners to showcase the educational offerings of their institutions as well as viewing the capabilities and drive of potential student applicants to on-campus programs.
