It is hard to overstate the importance of UX in our relationship with the digital environment. 

Forrester has established that organizations that invest in UX have fared better than most in bull markets and in recessions (Forrester, 2015). This is truer than ever, now that the pandemic has broadened the adoption of remote work, online social life and entertainment.

Learn User Experience fundamentals from the professors of the most important UX lab in North America. 

In this UX Design and Evaluation MicroMasters program offered by EdX in partnership with HECMontrealX, you will learn to meet organizational goals and satisfy users by applying a user-centred process to the digital products and services development that solve industry-relevant, real-world problems.

  • UX demand for UX specialists is strong and will grow some a hundredfold between 2017 and 2050, as organizations around the world strive towards UX maturity. (Source: Jakob Nielsen, NNGroup)
