James Serra notes that there will be a Microsoft Professional Program for Big Data:
A few months back, Microsoft started the Microsoft Professional Program for Data Science (note the program name change from Microsoft Professional Degree to Microsoft Professional Program, or MPP). This is online learning via edX.org as a way to learn the skills and get the hands-on experience that a data science role requires. You may audit any courses, including the associated hands-on labs, for free. However, to receive credit towards completing the data science track in the Microsoft Professional Program, you must obtain a verified certificate for a small fee for each of the ten courses you successfully complete in the curriculum. The course schedule is presented in a suggested order, to guide you as you build your skills, but this order is only a suggestion. If you prefer, you may take them in a different order. You may also take them simultaneously or one at a time, so long as each course is completed within its specified session dates.
Look for it sometime next year.
