In a recent Inside Higher Ed article, writer Kathryn Palmer discusses microcredentialling, the quality of microcredentialling, and the appetite for these certifications from parents and students.

The survey, which featured responses from 1,000 parents and 500 high school teachers and counselors, says, “Eighty-seven percent of parents said they thought their children would have some interest in learning more about microcredentials, and they said the most appealing aspects of nondegree pathways included the perception that they are low cost, take less time to complete than a degree and lead to employment with a good salary.”

BCNE is working to provide quality credentialing programs for folks interested in biotech or high school students interested in entering the industry after graduation.  These certifications are provided by partners such as Northeastern’s Biopharmaceutical Analysis Training Laboratory and MassBioEd.
