“Workplace is changing more rapidly than ever before, and employers are in need of highly-skilled talent, especially in fields most impacted by advances in technology,” explained Anant Agarwal, CEO at edX, in a blog post to announce edX’s Masters.

The launch of the Master’s programs follows the success of an initial pilot program with the Georgia Institute of Technology in Analytics, which demonstrated the impact of offering disruptively priced Master’s degrees from top-ranked institutions at scale. The program started with 250 students in Fall 2017 and has grown to more than 1,200 in Fall 2018. Tuition for Georgia Tech’s Online Master of Science in Analytics (OMS Analytics) degree is available for less than $10,000. The residential program ranges from $36,000 for in-state students to $49,000 for out of state.
