To help you build credibility with professionals in your sector, the CEU Universities have implemented an innovation in their Bachelor's degree that allows you to share your skills on your professional social media sites. These are Microcredentials, the qualifications of the future.



The world needs more than a degree

If your qualification is a requirement, skills can set you apart and make you the ideal candidate for a company. So making your skills visible is key.

In addition to gaining your Bachelor's degree, as a UAO CEU student you acquire a series of personal and professional skills that are in high demand by future employers and that give you added value in the competitive and demanding labour market.


What is a microcredential?

  • A microcredential is a digital qualification that recognises and accredits a learned skill.
