What is the correct way to say I will learn the subject XYZ which is a part of the program ABC?

Is it "I will learn marketing strategies in the MBA program" or "I will learn marketing strategies during the MBA program"?

If you want to put emphasis on the specific strategies which are presented in the program, you should use 'in'. However, if you want to imply that you will learn some strategies during the course of the program, use 'during'.


"In" indicates that XYZ is a part of the program ABC.
"During" can simply indicate a period of time. For example, you can learn XYZ as something optional when you pass the program ABC (which may not include XYZ as a mandatory component).
