Villanova School of Business Digital Badge Credentials

The Villanova School of Business offers verified, digital credential badges for students who complete the required Professional MBA Specializations curriculum. Our badges are available for download and can be shared through Credly, allowing students to easily communicate their skills and accomplishments across digital platforms.  

The badges are free for VSB Professional MBA students and contain information describing the credential, skills acquired, and details regarding the requirements to earn them. Badges allow students to easily share their achievements on social media, email signatures, and other platforms. 

We have partnered with Credly to translate the learning outcomes you’ve demonstrated into a badge, issued and managed through the company's digital badging platform. The technology Credly uses is based on the Open Badge Standards maintained by IMS Global. This enables you to manage, share and verify your competencies digitally.

You can share your badge directly from Credly to LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook, via email, embedded in a website, or within an email signature

Representing your skills as a badge gives you a way to share your abilities online in a way that is simple, trusted, and can be easily verified in real-time. Open badges are web-enabled versions of a credential, certification, or learning outcome which can be verified in real-time, online. Badges provide employers and peers concrete evidence of what you had to do to earn your credential and what you’re now capable of. Credly also offers labor market insights, based on your skills. You can search and apply for job opportunities right through Credly.

Labor market insights are pulled from live job requisitions. Based on your skills you can learn which employers are hiring, what job titles you might be qualified for, salary ranges, and more. Search active job listings and even apply for them with just a few clicks through Credly. Access the labor market insights from your badge details page by clicking on Related Jobs, or by clicking on the skill tags assigned to your badge.  

You can easily configure your privacy settings in Credly. You’re in complete control of the information about yourself that is made public.

While badges are simply digital image files, they are uniquely linked to data hosted on Credly. This link to verified data makes them more reliable and secure than a paper-based certificate. It also eliminates the possibility of anyone claiming your credential and your associated identity.
