What is Emerging Talent?

MIT Emerging Talent

MIT Emerging Talent at the Jameel World Education Lab develops global education programs that target the needs of talented individuals from the most challenging economic and social circumstances, by equipping them with the knowledge and tools to advance their education and careers. Our vision is to provide talented learners a platform to advance their skills, leverage their  expertise,  access a professional career, and become leading change agents in their communities.

MIT Emerging Talent expands upon the efforts of the MIT Refugee Action Hub (ReACT), which has offered its Certificate in Computer and Data Science to over 200 learners in its 5 year history. Now under the MIT Emerging Talent brand, these Certificate programs harness MIT’s digital learning courses and tools, global networks, and entrepreneurial spirit towards transformative programming for talented individuals from historically excluded or underrepresented backgrounds, including refugees, displaced, and conflict-impacted communities, from around the world.
