Build an education that meets your career needs.
With CSU-Global, career advancement doesn’t have to wait until after graduation. Your career is happening now, so you should choose an educational path that meets your current and your long-term goals.
CSU-Global designed its online certificates, specializations, and degrees so that they could work together as building blocks for your personalized career success. Higher education calls these “stackable credentials,” but what it means to you is that you can add programs and gain expertise in the most career-relevant skills you need for your next job today while still working toward your long-term career. You can apply all of the credits you’ve earned toward the degree you need in the future, so that you can take your career to the next level.
Get the knowledge you need now through a 4-6 course certificate program and then roll it into a full degree when the time is right for you.
Start by thinking about what you specifically want to accomplish in your career. Are you looking to run the IT department at the hospital where you work? Do you need to learn project management now but eventually want to be an accountant? Your career aspirations are unique, and the possibilities are endless!
Work with an enrollment counselor, your advisor, or an industry career coach to layout the educational building blocks that are right for you. Start with a shorter term certificate program, earn a certificate of completion through a specialization, and then create a custom degree plan — using the credits you have already earned through these programs as well as your transfer credits — that helps you complete your bachelor’s or master’s degree faster for your long-term success.
In today’s competitive, fast-paced, and increasingly automated environment, lifelong learning is more important than ever.
