Micro-Credentials and Badges

Smaller that a minor, a certificate, or a degree program, micro-credentials allow you to meet your personalized learning needs by gaining knowledge and skills in areas that are relevant to your academic or professional goals. Micro-credentials equip you with digital badges that showcase your achievements and all it took to get there.

Benefits of Micro-Credentials and Badges

  • Earn stackable skills that differentiate you, academically and professionally
  • Personalize your learning through credit and non-credit bearing opportunities
  • Display badges that contain your achievements and competencies to employers, colleagues and peers
  • Gain skills to keep you at the leading edge of your discipline, whether you’re a current UB student, prospective student or industry professional
