Online and hybrid programs, badges, and certificates

You can even finish your bachelor's degree and simultaneously earn a certificate in one of Michigan's most in-demand skills — global communications, project management, data analytics, or leadership — all in as few as 19 months. For many programs, all instruction and coursework are online. Hybrid programs include valuable experiential learning during a limited number of in-person visits at a GVSU campus.
