Learn the Skills Employers Want

In partnership with Education Design Lab, the University of Dayton is offering micro-credentialing opportunities (now through the department of Graduate Academic Affairs). Students enrolled in participating university courses will have the opportunity to earn badges in creative skills that can be added immediately and directly to their resume and LinkedIn profile, demonstrating to employers their ability to navigate applied creativity skills within their organization and setting them apart from other job/internship/co-op candidates.
