Professor Sheffi to lead creation of course content for MIT’s MicroMaster’s program
On October 7, MIT announced a pilot program in its Supply Chain Management (SCM) program. Students who excel in a semester’s worth of graduate classes online, and also pass a comprehensive proctored exam, can earn a MITx MicroMaster’s credential. Students can then apply to the full SCM master’s program and receive course credit for the work they did online, as well as come to MIT to complete the program and earn a master’s degree after a semester on campus.
