The HPU College of Business Administration received the Coursera 2023 'Campus Transformation Award'.
“Coursera Career Academy certificates were created to enhance education,” said HPU Dean of the College of Business Mark Rosenbaum, Ph.D. “These certificates will boost skills-based learning to ensure our students have a well-rounded perspective. The certificates are not meant to replace a traditional university education, but rather, they are provided so our students are job-ready and highly competitive in the workforce.”
