What are micro-credentials?

Micro-credentials are short, flexible, asynchronous learning modules designed to help participants develop the specialized, job-ready skills.

Our micro-credentials deliver 21st century innovation, design thinking, and entrepreneurship skills through in-person and online modules. Participants who successfully complete micro-credentials earn digital badges via Credly to document and share their achievements. These micro-credentials are short, competency-based recognitions and are not counted as an academic program or degree.
