Here's edx's launch post (sept 20):
MicroMasters Programs: a New Credential to Advance Your Career and Accelerate Your Master
and from Bloomberg 2 days ago:
New at MIT: Learn First, Pay Later (or Never) - Bloomberg
Highlight- "MIT, the originator of the MicroMasters, launched its pilot program in supply chain management earlier this year. It involves five courses lasting 10 weeks each, requiring eight to 10 hours of work per week per course. The school says 27,000 students enrolled, of whom 3,500 are working toward a certificate. By contrast, only 40 students are admitted each year to MIT's traditional, 10-month master's degree in supply chain management."
MS Applied Nutrition, Canisius College
AA & BA Social Science, Thomas Edison State College
AOS Culinary Arts, Culinary Institute of America
I love the idea, but the problem in my opinion is that none of these feed into any distance learning masters program.
Feels like a missed opportunity for many of these schools
Danger, Will Robinson! (Robot B-9 - Lost in Space) A micro-master's could lead to a nano-doctorate ... or worse, a pico-fellowship!

Look under the descriptions of these Micro-Masters again. Seems like some of these (SCM, Project Management for instance) can be transferred to a Master's degree.

Politics is made from two words: "poly" meaning "many" and "ticks" meaning "blood-sucking insects."
The Supply Chain Management is on campus, not distance learning, and I believe the RIT is as well

RIT courses are available online or on campus.
Still a missed opportunity to me. Having a low cost teaser product that doesn't feed into an upsell is a missed opportunity; especially the foreign schools on a predominantly US site
Perhaps more will do so if the popularity increases
In general, fields like data science are multi disciplines, which involves computer science (machine learning), statistics, and domain knowledge (usu . Business for business analytics).
Micro master from moocs usually will not touch on commercial softwares like SPSS Statistics and Modeler. They may touch more on open source technologies like R and Python, Apache Spark. SPSS and SAS should usually be covered in master degree, at least for mine.
A specialized certificate in statistic is certainly not going to supersede someone with statistics master degree, likewise a micromaster cert in artificial intelligence is not going to win a person with machine learning master. But these certificates can help people who already have degrees in one field say machine learning to know more about another field like statistics. As such, the person is able to handle task involves statistics and discusses advanced data science challenge with another statistician to reduce communication barrier. If not why can't a micromaster transfer credits fully to get a full master degree without further study.
In a master programme, because it is not an undergraduate degree, your classmates can already be working adults with years of experiences. if you are able to work with him in your course projects and passed out with a same master degree with him/her, I do not think you really lack too much skills. This may be the reason that some job requirement stated a bachelor degree with n years of experience or a master degree with n-2 years of experiences.

Computer Science & IT Degrees
Information Technology (IT) has become an integral part of modern life. Among its most important functions are the efficient transmission of information and the storage and analysis of information. The workers described below all help individuals and organizations share and store information through computer networks and systems, the Internet, and computer databases. Network architects or network engineers
are the designers of computer networks. Computer systems analysts
use IT tools to help enterprises of all sizes achieve their goals. They may design and develop new computer systems by choosing and configuring hardware and software, or they may devise ways to apply existing systems' resources to additional tasks. Computer software engineers
design and develop software. They apply the theories and principles of computer science and mathematical analysis to create, test, and evaluate the software applications and systems that make computers work.
IT Degrees also incorporates Web Development, Web Design, Computer Security, Programming, Technology Management, and Information Systems Management.
•Employment is projected to increase much faster than the average for all occupations. Job prospects are expected to be excellent.
