Why Choose a Certificate?

Why Choose a Certificate?

Professional Certificates are ideal for developing new skills and building deep expertise in a specialized area to update your professional profile, advance your career, or broaden your knowledge base.

Certificates are an “anytime” credential
Start anytime - after graduation or later in your career - and gain deeper know-how in a specific area without the commitment to a degree.

Certificates demonstrate commitment
The dedication of time to earn a certificate demonstrates that you are committed to achieving a higher standard of professional knowledge in your industry.

Certificates provide immediate “ROE”
Georgia Tech learners master real-world skills and apply them to their career the day after completion.

Certificates stand out on your resume
A Georgia Tech credential carries the professional weight to give you a competitive edge.
