MasterTrack™ Certificates are earned by completing a concatenation of graduate-level courses offered on the Coursera platform by some of the world's most elite universities. Those same universities may allow qualified, admitted students to apply earned MasterTrack™ Certificate credits towards related Master's degrees, leading to an affordable academic degree. Coursera does not grant academic credit, and does not guarantee that completion of a MasterTrack™ Certificate will result in academic credit; the decision to grant, accept, or transfer academic credit is subject to the sole and absolute discretion of an academic institution.
