Fast Track Programs
Bridging the Skills Gap: From Classroom to Workplace
Employers are seeking graduates who can demonstrate important human skills such as teamwork and creative problem solving - and they also want candidates with the specific skills in-demand in their jobs and industry: sales, design, marketing, coding, and more.
In a competitive job market, how can you keep pace developing the in-demand skills employers are seeking?
Fast Track offers you an opportunity to demonstrate high-demand skills before you enter the job market. No matter your major, gain skills and experience to add to your resume to set you apart from other entry-level job applicants with a Fast Track micro-credential.
Fast Track gives employers a chance to identify talent in action (you!), and you get the chance to interact with employers while solving real challenges. Get skills training, project-based experience, industry credentials, and interaction with employers and professionals through Fast Track.
