Certificates And Credentials

As the student population evolves, so too does their demand from higher education, not only in terms of the service they receive but also in their end goals. Today’s learner is an adult continuously returning to college over the course of their career to upgrade their skills and competencies. To that end, a baccalaureate or master’s degree is no longer necessarily the credential students seek. More and more students are looking for short-term credentials, like certificates and certifications (among others), and colleges need to respond. Of course, managing these shorter-credential offerings requires institutions to have a different toolbox than one that only manages the pursuit of degrees.
