to offer Google Career Certificates to thousands of for-credit and non-credit students. This new online initiative is

analytics, digital marketing and e-commerce , IT Support, project management and user
experience (UX) design.

the online training alongside regular courses, so students earn college credit and
an industry-recognized certificate, which can give graduates an advantage in the job
Universities also will offer the certificates through non-credit options to the community
and partnerships with employers. The certificates can be completed online within three
to six months of part-time study. No degree or experience required.
