Gain specialized knowledge that will make you more competitive in the workforce.
Brenau’s online professional certificates are one-year programs designed to create an effective path to accelerating your career. As the job market evolves, continuing your education can help you distinguish yourself in an increasingly competitive workforce.
Earning a certificate reaps its own rewards. In fact, 52 percent of employees with advanced degrees hold a certificate, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Professional certificates add a layer of training to your education by focusing on specific principles within the discipline. This hyper-focused learning makes sure that you’re covering the latest and most relevant topics.
The accelerated format of a certificate allows you to complete it within one year, and the investment you make shows current and prospective employers your commitment to furthering your qualifications.
You may be in a career – or want to start a new one – that requires different training from what you received in your degree. A professional certificate can help you get the latest training without earning another college degree.
“I completed my master’s program five years ago and didn’t have the time commitment to go back and complete another two-year program. Getting my certificate in accounting made more sense for me and helped me get ahead in my career.”
