LAKERS TOGETHER: Grand Valley is preparing for successful learning experiences when classes resume on Aug. 31. Learn more about the plan for fall in this handbook.
The Seidman digital badge in emerging leadership is designed to prepare emerging leaders for the challenges they will experience as they gain greater levels of responsibility. The badge (not a degree or certificate) will prepare students in the following areas:
The digital badge is cohort based, is comprised of five courses (14 credits), and concludes with an applied project that is part of the coursework.
Completion of a bachelor's degree is required for admission. Strong preference will be given to candidates with at least three years of experience and company support.
The Micro Masters Badge is offered on Pew Campus at the L. William Seidman Center in downtown Grand Rapids, MI.

In addition to the courses, students will participate in coaching and professional mentoring: This one-on-one coaching is designed for students' professional development and is not an internship. This will be done with industry mentors who will be available for the duration of the program and students will be able to network with them for professional networking and guidance. The mentors will be arranged by the Seidman College of Business and will be available for guidance and coaching for about five hours over the 14 credits.
