This micro-degree program includes courses such as business opportunity management, sales processes, marketing, basic product structure, etc. The program is not only suitable for junior and senior college students, but it is also suitable for professionals, business managers, system architecture planners, IT managers, etc.

During the program, students will use application scenarios, such as how to customize a no-code platform based on the different needs of their clients and how to accelerate the digital transformation of an enterprise and learn Microsoft business intelligence products. In addition, students who have completed the courses and passed the exam will have the opportunity to receive a recommendation to work in Microsoft partner companies, such as OPPO, VIVO, and TCL.

The Business Application Talent Development micro-degree is an example of XuetangX's MOOC + Enterprise Certification model. Prior to this collaboration with Microsoft, XuetangX launched other enterprise micro-degrees with companies such as Amazon and Aliyun.

During their five years of existence, the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) have encouraged Chinese education model reform. However, limitations have led to the need to update and evolve these courses. Therefore, XuetangX created a new learning model called MOOC+, which includes four major online learning types: MOOC + Certification of Practical Training, MOOC + Enterprise Certification, MOOC + University Certification, and MOOC + Degree Certification.

XuetangX also launched an online Algorithm Training Camp, where students learn with more flexibility. The camp, which is an example of XuetangX's MOOC + Certification of Practical Training model, includes community operations and practical exercises. The program's learning method has changed from a traditional lecture to a project and group-based learning method.

For the first time in China, the XuetangX platform launched two online certification programs: the Public Management and Data Science programs, which are examples of XuetangX's MOOC + University Certification method. Each project consists of six series of courses, including live broadcasting and video classes, as well as corresponding periodic exams that must be completed within one year. In addition, the students must complete a professional practice project under the instructor's supervision. Upon completion of the project, the students will receive a certificate issued by Tsinghua University.

Li Chao, the CEO of XuetangX, believes that the future of education must combine offline and online courses. In-depth thinking and forward-looking judgments about education in the future prompted XuetangX to launch the new MOOC + model, which promotes educational change and meets the needs of lifelong learning and knowledge renewal.

XuetangX is a world's leading platform for lifelong learning. It is devoted to bringing together quality education resources from schools, enterprises, and providing a low-cost, efficient access to knowledge, certificates, credits and even degrees. At present, there are 12 million registered users and more than 1500 MOOCs courses.
