Certificates

This article outlines the way certificates of completion work in the cohort learning platform. While completion certificates can be earned, it is important to note that the certificates do not offer credits at the respective academic institutions and are simply certificates of completion.

Which course authors offer completion certificates?

Our company enters into partnership agreements with Executive Education business units within accredited academic institutions. Currently, our company has two such academic partnerships:

  1. The University of Michigan Ross School of Business
  2. Penn State University Smeal College of Business

Our company also has a partnership with the consulting firm The RBL Group to award certificates of completion for programs offered through the Dave Ulrich HR Academy.

The partnerships between our company and academic institutions do not include articulation agreements, meaning that schools will not award university credit toward degree programs for any of our courses or programs. They do, however, issue branded certificates of completion.
