edX and University of Wisconsin–Madison Launch Business MicroMasters® Program

edX announced the launch of a new Micromasters program, Business: Data, Insights, and Analytics, with the University of Wisconsin–Madison, now available through the Wisconsin School of Business.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., and MADISON, Wisc. – November 8, 2022 – edX, a leading global online learning platform from 2U, Inc. (Nasdaq: TWOU), today announced the launch of a new Micromasters program, Business: Data, Insights, and Analytics, with the University of Wisconsin–Madison, now available through the Wisconsin School of Business.

The three-course, 24-week MicroMasters program will enable learners to uncover insights and provide actionable recommendations through business analytics tools and methodologies. Specific skill areas include data visualization, database management, statistics, programming, and cloud computing. As with all MicroMasters programs on edX, this program creates an innovative on-ramp for learners looking to pursue a master's degree, in addition to providing a valuable, standalone credential. 

The University of Wisconsin system has offered boot camps through 2U since 2019. This new partnership with UW–Madison marks an exciting expansion of free-to-degree offerings on edX. In addition to the MicroMasters program, UW–Madison is also offering a Professional Certificate in Online Education and a variety of free courses in business analytics, as well as education and teacher training. The university will continue to leverage the combination of 2U and edX support as it works with the company to power additional disruptively priced programs.

“The launch of this MicroMasters program is a great example of how higher education institutions are evolving to provide students with a variety of learning pathways that are flexible, stackable, and representative of the skills needed in today’s economy,” said Anant Agarwal, founder of edX and chief platform officer at 2U. “We look forward to continuing to grow our partnership with UW–Madison under the joint mission of helping make education more accessible and affordable.”
