The University of San Diego has recently partnered with Pathstream, an online digital skills provider, to offer four new certificate programs built in partnership with leading technology companies: The Facebook Digital Marketing Certificate, The Asana Project Management Certificate, The Salesforce Administrator Career Certificate, and The Unity Immersive Design Certificate.
These hands-on certificate programs equip students with career-aligned digital skills to prepare them for their next job or promotion, or the launch of their own business. Programs are focused on career areas with high demand and job growth such as Salesforce administration and digital marketing. Using the Pathstream learning platform, students can practice using software like Facebook or Salesforce in the online classroom. There are no prerequisites and the programs are designed to fit into the lives of full-time employees and parents looking to change careers, get back in the workforce, or upskill.
Throughout the programs, students practice their digital skills in online labs and projects based on real-world workplace scenarios, which simulate experiences they will encounter on the job. Pathstream provides students with career services to help them land a new job after the program.
The University of San Diego is also included on San Diego’s Eligible Training Provider List and is therefore eligible to receive funding through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act funds.
Upon successful completion of the program, students earn a certificate co-branded by the University of San Diego and the partnered technology company. These programs will be offered multiple times throughout the year, and more information can be found here.
