The Mission Meets the Market Digital Badge Program from the Chaifetz School of Business provides students and others an opportunity to demonstrate their unique skills to employers and the community.
Badges are available in a variety of areas to help students certify their competence with in-demand skills in today’s job market. Badges can be displayed on LinkedIn, online resumes and more to help job seekers differentiate themselves in the market.
How Digital Badges Work?
Content and requirements are unique to each individual badge, but badges can be completed online at your own pace. With successful completion and verification of badge criteria, earners are awarded the corresponding digital badge and can add the visual badge to their online presence. Chaifetz School digital badges link to detailed information about each micro-credential, allowing employers and others to verify the competencies demonstrated to earn each badge.
Choose from 3 Unique Badge Opportunities
The Chaifetz School offers three badge series with one badge currently available in each series. Additional badges are currently in development and will be available in 2022.
