"Affordable" and "accessible" are not words typically associated with graduate school, even though having a degree or certification can be crucial for career advancement. To mitigate common economic and geographic barriers, established online platforms edX and Coursera have special programs like MicroMasters and MasterTracks, which offer graduate-level courses for a fraction of the average on-campus price tag.

Ranging from $1,000 to $5,000, they can cover up to 50% of a university master's program's curriculum. Upon completion, you can usually apply your MicroMasters or MasterTrack credits towards full master's programs to reduce costs and finish your degree faster.

You can take these as stand-alone programs to advance your career prospects or as a stepping stone towards a full master's program. And since both platforms count top universities among their partners, that could eventually mean lower overall tuition costs at schools like MIT, Duke, Indiana University, Georgia Tech, the University of Michigan, and more. 

Below, we compared the basic details for each bite-sized graduate program below. Ultimately, the best platform will be the one that offers the program closest to your particular interests and goals. But, in terms of services, edX may edge out Coursera — its offerings are cheaper, significantly more varied, and more lenient overall.

Elmhurst University launches Innovation and Entrepreneurship Certificate program - Chicago Daily Herald

Elmhurst University has launched a new graduate certificate program in innovation and entrepreneurship that can help students jump-start a startup, bring new ventures to existing organizations, and better leverage ideas in today's dynamic economy.

The graduate Certificate in Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIE) program is designed for students interested in entrepreneurship or intrapreneurship (innovation within an existing organization). Currently accepting students for the fall of 2021, the part-time certificate program can be completed on campus or online in one year.

"Innovation and entrepreneurship are what make the U.S. a global leader in commerce, and we can't afford to lose that edge," says Bruce Fischer, professor of business and economics and director of Elmhurst's CIE program. "Programs like ours will help us sustain that edge by equipping our students to transform ideas into reality."

A highlight of the new program is Elmhurst's academic partnership with Innovation DuPage, a business incubator serving the DuPage County region that unites startup founders and small-business owners with the people and resources to help them grow. As an academic partner, Innovation DuPage will provide Elmhurst students with access to Innovation DuPage facilities, services and mentors.

"We are excited to partner with Elmhurst University to help mold the next generation of entrepreneurs," said Travis Linderman, managing director of Innovation DuPage. "Whether these students decide to launch new companies or drive internal transformation, they will contribute meaningfully to growth in their communities. The resources available at Innovation DuPage can amplify that growth and further drive the region's economic prosperity."

Elmhurst University also offers students an array of entrepreneurship support services through the E-celerator, the university's entrepreneurship resource center, including:
