The Business School partners with the leading online education platform edX to provide online courses.

A global organisation, edX removes the barriers of cost, location, and access, giving its global community of 20+ million learners the opportunity to learn with top-ranked universities.

We currently run two learning opportunities through edX: a MicroMasters in Predictive Analytics and a Professional Certificate in Digital Marketing Fundamentals. Learners can gain access to all the course materials, except graded assignments, for free for a fixed period of time. Alternatively, they can pay to access all course materials and assessments on the 'verified track', with unlimited access to the course material for as long as it exists on edX. Verified learners who complete the programme will also earn a certificate which can be added to a LinkedIn profile or CV/resume.


MicroMasters are online postgraduate level courses from leading universities designed to advance your career by providing deep learning in specific career fields. MicroMasters can be used as a standalone course to help you develop your skills within a current or future role, but can also open the door for further postgraduate study.

The Business School has a MicroMasters in Predictive Analytics which is composed of five standalone learning modules.

Professional Certificates

Professional Certificate programmes from edX are courses designed by industry leaders and top universities to build and enhance critical professional skills needed to succeed in today's most in-demand fields. Certificates are shorter in duration, requiring less time commitment per week, and as such are a more affordable option than MicroMasters.

Building on the success of the School's short online course, Introduction to Marketing, we have launched a self-paced Professional Certificate in Digital Marketing Fundamentals which is composed of two standalone modules.
