Micro-Credential Series

Intro to Business Micro-Credential 

The three one-hour modules will be delivered live (in-person) and virtually. The completion of three projects is required for badging. Intro to Business is a prerequisite for our Project Management (PM) micro-credential modules (starting in April 2021).
 
Students will gain confidence and understanding of identified topics and learn the key concepts of successful business practices. Whether in school, at home, or in the professional world, this knowledge is highly transferable.
