Learn about certificate programs, as well as what to expect when earning your certificate at UJ Accelerated.

A professional certificate can equip you with the most current standards and up-to-date knowledge in a specific field or industry. Unlike a degree which can take 4+ years to complete, certificates are valuable because they give you the ability to immediately demonstrate to employers that you are a trained professional—meaning they act as proof points for hard skills on your resume.

These tangible credentials often come with a lot of benefits, including:

  • Advancement opportunities
  • Higher pay
  • Standing out in a competitive job marketing
  • Tuition reimbursement from employers for continued education

Why Earn a Professional Certificate with UJ Accelerated?

Unlike many other professional organizations that offer certificates, we are an institution of higher education that is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). Our certificates are unique because they are stackable, meaning they can count as credit towards a degree should you wish to one day continue your education.

Some certificates count as undergraduate credits, while others offer graduate degree credits.

In fact, many of our students choose to simultaneously earn certificates while they’re working towards their degree. They count as credit, shape their expertise, and validate their skills pre-graduation.

There is a difference here.

We’re committed to creating a flexible learning environment that helps you reach your goals. Whether you’re looking to advance in your current career or change your career path all together, we’re here for you.
