NEW DELHI: Munjal family-led Hero Group’s ed-tech venture Hero Vired Tuesday joined hands with MIT Open learning, the digital arm of the famed MIT, to offer courses in emerging and future technologies.

Hero Vired said it was integrating MITx and MITx MicroMasters®️ programmes into larger specialised programmes in artificial intelligence (AI) , machine leaning (ML), data science, finance and financial technologies, and game design to provide quality learning and up-skilling experience to Indian learned.

“At Hero Vired we are …particularly excited about integrating the MITx MicroMasters® programs into our PG Certificate Programs, as HeroVired students who complete an MITx MicroMasters program will be able to apply to Master’s programs at universities around the world that offer an accelerated path to degree completion to admitted MicroMasters credential holders," said Akshay Munjal, founder and chief executive of Hero Vired.

“We are confident that Hero Vired’s unique offerings and industry exposure will be able to produce individuals with hireable skills required for the jobs of the future," he said.

We are excited to see MITx courses and MITx MicroMasters Programs being integrated into larger, specialized programs…that Hero Vired is launching for professionals in India."

As part of this undertaking, Hero Vired’s programs will integrate MITx MicroMasters® programmes to introduce knowledge and skills that are highly lucrative for the Indian job market and also provide a pathway to master's programs worldwide.
