Apply Your Learning to a Graduate Degree
Working towards a Questrom Digital MicroMasters certificate allows you to apply to the full-time Master of Science in Digital innovation (MSDi) graduate degree program. If accepted to the MSDi, your MicroMasters certificate waives 25% of the degree requirements, allowing you to complete the degree in seven months.
This exciting program engages you in hands-on learning at the intersection of business, analytics, design, technology, and platforms: where digital innovation lives. You’ll obtain the tools and strategic perspectives to leverage data, people, the power of programming, and the reach of digital technologies to address critical needs, transform existing markets, and grow new ones.
BUx Digital Initiative MicroMasters students can apply for the MSDi program through our online application. Candidates must submit the following to be considered for admission:
- Application form & $125 application fee
- Written essay
- Current resume
- 2 recommendation letters (cannot be from BU MicroMasters faculty)
- Undergraduate transcripts (candidates must have earned a bachelor’s degree in order to enroll in the MSDi program)
- Graduate transcripts (if applicable)
- TOEFL/IELTS scores (if applicable)
After submission of required materials, competitive candidates will be invited to interview. Candidates can apply before they finish their BUx MicroMasters certificate and receive conditional acceptance. Applications are due February 28th 2018 for enrollment in the May’18 intensive and completion in the fall semester. Final acceptance will be granted once the MicroMasters is complete.
Prospective students not pursuing a MicroMasters must apply to the joint MBA-MSDi program. This is a valuable alternative requiring a longer commitment and a broader experience to earn two graduate degrees.
