. According to Strada Education, 65% of the U.S. workforce does not have a four-year degree and, as more people question the value of degree programs in general, micro-credentials and other alternative education options are bound to generate long-term momentum.

Micro-credentials also fill a broad range of other needs:

·         Bite-sized learning after graduation: Certificates can supplement knowledge from a degree program, making them attractive for people who have already completed an undergraduate or graduate program.

·         Support for stackable degree programs: Universities are starting to experiment with alternative program structures that leverage certificate programs as a way to give their students more choice in their course load. For example, a student may be able to earn a business degree by completing a set of business, marketing and finance certificate programs.

·         More affordable education: The cost of education rose roughly 59% between 2000 and 2020, while inflation-adjusted median wages only rose 5%. Lower-cost certificate programs provide education access to large segments of the population who can’t spend the time or money on an undergraduate or graduate degree.

·         More accessible education: Online certificates with shorter time commitments make it easier for students to complete their education in smaller chunks of time and exercise more granular control over what courses they take. For neurodivergent and disabled students, this can mean all the difference between completing all their academic goals and having to drop out of school to address mental health or medical issues.

·         Career exploration: Few people are certain of what they want to do with their lives at the start of their education journey. While not everyone will be interested in pursuing a degree, many will use certificates to explore their passions and decide whether to continue their education from there.

·         Universities become more resilient: Schools don’t have to reinvent the wheel to create an exceptional certificate program. They can use existing courses and curricula as a foundation to efficiently and cost effectively build programs that meet market demand. By offering a varied mix of programs, schools can ensure they continue serving students even during economic downturns and other disruptions.
