  • Lead and communicate projects effectively
  • Propose new lines of business within a company

MITx MicroMasters in Statistics and Data Science, the driving force behind our program

The objective of the course is for the students to dominate the foundations of data science, statistics and machine learning.

The MITx MicroMasters degree has international validity and is an academic credential issued by edX under the name of MITx, which the students will receive once they pass on the integrated graduate-level courses and the final proctored exam from the MITx MicroMasters in Statistics and Data Science. The courses are Probability - The Science of Uncertainty and Data; Data Analysis for Social Sciences; Fundamentals of Statistics, and Machine Learning with Python: from Linear Models to Deep Learning.


We answer a series of frequently asked questions that tend to be the cause of many doubts. In case you have a question that is not covered below, send us an email at

There are no formal requisites for enrolmentenrolment in the MITx MicroMasters courses. Though their successful completion will require high proficiency in linear algebra, multivariate calculus, Python and an excellent command of the English language.

The first cohort of the program started in May 16th, 2019. The second cohort will begin in February 2020.

Between 15 and 17 months. The first cohort of the program started in May 2019 and it ends on September 2020.

The subjects are taught in English.

The program combines eight weeks of on-site workshops in Uruguay (for the first cohort, two in May, four in January and two in September) with online, asynchronous lessons. Complementing the theoretical subject matter, students will analyze cases, develop exercises and participate in synchronous courses that will foster continuous learning.

In the LATU Technological Park, Montevideo, Uruguay.

The on-site classes are intensive, starting at 9:00AM and ending at 6:00PM. The synchronous classes will be taught at 9:00AM (Uruguay time). The MITx MicroMasters Program asynchronous classes will be available whenever it is most convenient for the students.

Once the Probability, Data Analysis, Statistics, Machine Learning and the final exam are completed and passed, the degree obtained is a MicroMasters in Statistics and Data Science, issued by edX under the name of MITx.

Participants of PON Global who take part in all sessions and negotiation simulations will also receive a certificate of completion from the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School.

Once the totality of the program is completed, the degree obtained is a Professional Master in Data Science, issued by UTEC.
