    New for 2019-20 at Harvard Extension School:

    • A new Master of Liberal Arts degree field in Industrial-Organizational Psychology. Low-residency, with a minimum three courses that are on campus only, with some courses available in summer or short January term schedules.

    • New graduate certificates in Data Analytics, Digital Storytelling, Project Management, and Sustainable Food Systems.

    • A graduate certificate in Sustainable Cities and Communities replaces one in Green Building and Sustainable Communities, and a graduate certificate in Marketing Management and Digital Strategy replaces one in Marketing Management alone.

    • New pathways from MITx MicroMasters programs into HES ALMs in Data Science, Finance, and Information Management Systems.

    I am interested in the path of MITX MIcroMaster programs into HESL ALM in Finance; however, I could not find anywhere MITx MicroMaster.

    That is interesting, you can get a MicroMaster from MIT in Statistics and Data Science and Harvard University's Master of Liberal Arts (ALM) in Finance. I might look into the option...

    I did the Harvardx Data Science certificate program and it was pretty messy. The examples weren't thorough enough, and I wound up having to figure out the problems entirely on my own without using the class material. I didn't even bother to get the certificate.

    Hopefully, their other programs are better.

    HarwardX via edx offers great classes.

    I think one exceptionally popular set of classes is the CS50s - Computer Science. There are six courses available.
    The professor and his team are doing a great job.
    CS50x Tops the 10 Most Popular edX Courses.

    I know people who took the following professional certificate that helped them with employment.

    1. HarvardX's Computer Science and Mobile Apps Professional Certificate
