Webinar Video | Turning Your Plans for Credentials Into Reality

Everyone is talking about “new offerings” in graduate management education ranging from badges to micro-credentials to certificates. How do you turn that talk into actual implementation at your institution, and how do you continue to plan for the future of alternative credentials? Join this interactive session as we share some research about why and how business schools are developing credentials in their curriculum. Listen to what one of the original institutions to launch stackable credential programs has done and learned. Explore what is coming in the future and identify new resources to develop your own credential implementation strategy.
