Fast Track: Train Students in the Skills You Need
Fast Track programs offer UA students an opportunity to learn and demonstrate in-demand digital and human skills before entering the job market.
Students that earn Fast Track micro-credentials through applied, project-based learning using curriculum developed or approved by employers gain skills and experience that set them apart from other entry-level applicants in areas like sales, coding, digital marketing and design.
“This fills a huge gap we’re well aware of between what students have available in the classroom and what the expectations are once they get into the workforce. The program takes what they’ve already learned in the classroom and then combines it with real-world experience on a project that we’re actually doing this year. I think the feedback coming directly rom the employers, the people that would be hiring them in the future, is extremely valuable to the students.”
