As continuous learning is a fact of life in the business world, the combination of online credentials and “mainstream” in-depth teaching offers an innovative solution for learning and professional development. We are pleased to be collaborating with MIT in offering a learning path of an accelerated MSc degree, the Alba MSc Degree for the international cohort of holders of the MITx MicroMasters in Finance credential.
