The Center for Business Analytics Digital Badge Program

 

What is the Center for Business Analytics Digital Badge Program?

The digital badge program allows for web-enabled evidence of learning, participation, and completion of skills or achievements. Digital badges are easily verified online and can be shared across different digital channels for demonstration of achievement.

The Center for Business Analytics (CBA) believes that every step matters in the path of learning, and digital badging is a great way to recognize a student’s achievement and acquired skill set. That’s why we utilize Badgr, a badging platform, to issue badges to students who meet the specific earning criteria that the Center of Business Analytics has set up.
