“MIT Professional Education’s programs tackle all the technologies that are at the heart of the digital transformation, enabling dedicated professionals to meet new challenges in the Fourth Industrial Revolution and lead change within their organizations”.

MIT Professional Education’s Digital Blended Learning

MIT Professional Education is revolutionizing the digital learning experience. In fact, we’re no longer talking about online-only, but rather an interactive and collaborative learning experience, that’s digitally powered. That’s because not only will participants be exposed to one of the most innovative e-learning platforms that utilizes the latest technology, they’ll also have an opportunity to meet and work with some of the world’s leading subject matter experts in the fields of technology.

Blended programs – Beyond online

The concept of studying online with us goes beyond a strictly digital learning experience. With MIT Professional Education, participants will have an opportunity to:

  • Attend international workshops and live webinars.
  • Collaborate and engage with world-renowned MIT faculty.
  • Learn from external facilitators, guest speakers and subject matter experts from various industries.
  • Meet and network with other program participants from all around the world.

Even though our online programs are open to hundreds of participants, each cohort is capped at 50 participants. And, by connecting digitally and working in much smaller groups with their peers, participants will have the feeling of a personalized learning experience, as if they were in the same classroom.

Professional networking

Through an MIT Professional Education program, participants will not only learn to apply the latest technologies, they’ll also be exposed to MIT’s faculty of world-renowned professors and instructors. And, after completing the course, they’ll be invited to be part of the MIT Professional Education Learning Community affording them an opportunity to grow their professional network.
