Stackable Certificates and a Thriving Career

Published Date: 07-14-2021

Carroll University has begun offering stackable certificates online for fall 2021. Primed for the busy professional who wants the opportunity to further their education and career but who may not currently have the flexibility in their lives to take on a full-fledged master’s program, these certificates are a revolutionary way to earn your MBA degree.  

What are they?

Stackable certificates are short, in-depth programs that are hyper-focused on one topic and are offered entirely online. Take healthcare data analytics, for example. If you decide to pursue the Healthcare Data Analytics Graduate Certificate here at Carroll, you will take four, 8-week courses that are built specifically so that you are equipped with the knowledge and skills you need to succeed in a healthcare analytics career. 

Each of these programs can then be stacked on top of each other to build your knowledge base. They can also be stacked on top of one of the online MBA programs we offer as a way to differentiate you against others in the same industry.

Carroll offers 6 graduate certificate programs:

Open New Doors

If you want to jump into a new career or expand your horizons, a graduate certificate is a perfect opportunity for you to do so without overburdening yourself. Often, a traditional master’s program takes around 2 years to complete, while a certificate program can be completed in less than a year. This type of program can be the bridge between two careers or can work to further your current career by helping you stand out from the crowd. 

Let’s say, for example, that you’ve earned your Bachelor of Science in Nursing and want to begin to transfer into an administrative role while remaining in healthcare. Rather than dedicate a full two years to a master’s program, you can earn your Healthcare Administration Graduate Certificate from Carroll in just four, 8-week sessions. If down the road, you choose to pursue your MBA from Carroll, those classes and credits can transfer into an individualized MBA degree.

Build a Brighter Future 

Stackable credentials are a cost-effective way of furthering your education while taking control of your career. They include fewer credits than traditional master’s programs but are highly focused so you’re only paying for the credits that directly tie into the field you are interested in.
