MicroMasters® Program in Finance

MicroMasters® Program in Finance


NARRATOR: Today’s financial
landscape is complex and full of uncertainty. To successfully
meet the challenges of modern global markets,
finance professionals need to approach them
through a rigorous set of STEM-based frameworks. LEONID KOGAN: That’s why MIT
Sloan School of Management and MITx have teamed up to
develop the MicroMasters program in Finance– a flexible, affordable
online program for learners looking to enhance
their finance qualifications or accelerate their MIT
Sloan Master’s in Finance. JIANG WANG: The
approach we’re going to take in the MicroMasters
program is a holistic approach. What we’re going to do is
to build the foundations of modern finance
from the ground up, starting from the
basic principles in the unified framework to
general methods and tools and then to broad applications
in financial markets and corporate finance. DEBORAH LUCAS:
What we’re offering is access to some of the best
financial thinkers in academia in the world. In fact, many of the
founders of modern finance came up with the
ideas that you’re going to learn in the
program right here at MIT. NARRATOR: The
MicroMasters program includes five online
courses from the curriculum taught at MIT Sloan’s on-campus
Master of Finance program. PAUL MENDE: We’ve
put together, really, the key, essential
elements you need to get a good start in
understanding modern finance– not just the theory, but its
applications in the real world. JOHN CORE: This is a course
that we’ve developed and honed over years at MIT Sloan. And so what you’ll be getting
is the same kind of experience our masters of
finance students do. NARRATOR: Completing each course
and passing its proctored exam earns you a MicroMasters
program certificate signed by MIT faculty. Want to join us on campus? Once you’ve earned your
MicroMasters program credential online, apply to the MIT Sloan
Master of Finance program. Upon acceptance, your
online MicroMasters work counts as credit toward your
on-campus master’s degree. This means you can fast track
your masters of finance. JIANG WANG: In many ways,
the approach we’re taking is not just about the past,
but more about the future– what future challenges we’re
facing and what new solutions we can develop to tackle them. PAUL MENDE: So get
ready to learn. Get ready to roll
up your sleeves. Get ready to do finance. LEONID KOGAN: Give
yourself the foundation you need to achieve your
academic and professional goals. And they’re all in the
MicroMasters program in Finance today.
