ReACT Programs

ReACT Computer and Data Science Certificate Program (CDS)


The CDS program is a yearlong blended learning program consisting of four components which leverage the strengths of MIT. Admitted students gain a mastery of computer science and data analytics skills through the completion of a specially curated series of courses on MITx and xPRO. The international cohort then goes on to participate in a 10 week virtual Innovation Bootcamp developing valuable understandings of entrepreneurial creativity, leadership, and problem-solving through collaborating and networking with innovators around the world. These skills are then consolidated and applied through paid onsite or remote professional internships with one of our partnering organizations.

ReACT DEDP MicroMasters

In June 2018, in partnership with the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL), MIT ReACT launched a new track in the MITx MicroMasters program in Data, Economics, and Development Policy (DEDP). A select group of refugee students are currently enrolled in the DEDP Program free of charge with access to (1) the five online MicroMasters courses, (2) in-person workshops in  entrepreneurship, innovation, and professional development, and (3) paid internships in the development field. Like the Computer and Data Science Certificate Program, the ReACT track within the DEDP MicroMasters offers a blended model specifically designed to meet the needs of refugees and other displaced persons. It is our goal to use these program features to enable refugee learners to advance both their education and professional careers in an accessible manner.
