Empowering change-makers: The DEDP MicroMasters program expands to include a new Public Policy Track and course

Earlier this year, the Data, Economics, and Development Policy MicroMasters program celebrated its five-year anniversary, and we reflected on our achievements throughout this journey. Today, as we look forward, we are delighted to announce another milestone for the program: the launch of a new Public Policy Track to complement our existing curriculum, which has so far primarily focused on international development. Accompanying this new Public Policy Track is a change in the name of the program to Data, Economics, and Design of Policy. This revised program name maintains the acronym DEDP while capturing the expanded range of subjects covered in the curriculum. Additionally, we will be introducing a new course, Microeconomic Theory and Public Policy, to the program’s offerings.
