Session description

Join us for a discussion with J-WEL Associate Director and Head of Operations Steve Carson and Anine Ward, Senior Account Manager for Strategic Engagements at MIT MicroMasters. We'll discuss J-WEL benefits, including our opportunities through affiliated organizations, including MIT MicroMasters.

This discussion is appropriate for current member organizations interested in getting the most out of their membership, and for organizations that might be thinking about joining J-WEL. We’ll provide a high-level overview of J-WEL’s structure, how we work with our members to effect educational transformation, and how our affiliate organization opportunities fit into our model.

A MicroMasters program credential is a professional and academic credential for online learners from anywhere in the world. Learners who pass an integrated set of MIT graduate-level courses on edX.org, and one or more proctored exams. This credential is valuable in and of itself. Additionally, credential-holders can then apply for an accelerated, on campus, master’s degree program at MIT or other universities. All MicroMasters program credential holders are also considered affiliates of the MIT Alumni Association.

Who should attend

If you are considering J-WEL membership, or are already a J-WEL member, this is a great opportunity to learn more about how J-WEL can benefit your organization.
