Microcredentials are short and affordable learning experiences that focus on a specific skill or competency, providing you an opportunity to advance your knowledge and abilities for career development and personal growth. These unique learning experiences provide pathways for working professionals and lifelong learners to continue their educational journey while navigating busy lives.

CBU offers these unique learning options as non-credit, stand-alone alternatives that are affordable, practical, and up-to-date with modern practices in their field. We’ve tapped recognized industry leaders to develop and deliver our programming to ensure learners benefit from high-quality instruction based on experience. Registration doesn’t require any prior knowledge, education, or experience and once you’ve been assessed on your new skill or competency, you’re awarded a Microcredential in the form of a digital badge. Share it with current and prospective employers, industry associations, or social platforms like LinkedIn and take your new skillset and Microcredential with you wherever your career leads.

Whether you’re looking to increase your professional skills, seeking to shift or revamp your career, preparing to enter the workforce, or focusing on personal growth, CBU’s Microcredentials provide you with a path to succeed.
