If you feel like you’re skills are increasing but your value in the eyes of your current employer is not, then it’s time to make a change. Change doesn’t have to mean anything as drastic as switching jobs or career pathways; the change you need can be as simple as adding credibility to your skills through a Business Certificate from Washington Technical Institute.
When you add credentials to skills you’re already demonstrating, your abilities include an added boost to your earning potential. The great part about a Business Certificate is that the courses you take are practical for almost every industry: managerial positions; engineers; healthcare professionals in many different roles; creative professionals such as writers, graphic designers, and musicians…they all benefit from business knowledge. Business credentials are valuable almost universally across industries. With certificate opportunities in the following specific areas of study, you’re bound to find a business certificate that will help you boost your salary:
- • Business Management and Leadership
- • Accounting
- • Business Law
- • Marketing
- • Economics
- • Business Administration
- • Digital Marketing
- • Project Management
A certificate in business will help you learn new strategies and skills so that you can highlight your value among your peers and leadership.
If you’re looking for an opportunity for upward mobility and – as a result- a move up the pay scale, then a certificate in Management and Leadership, Administration, or Project Management can take the skills you’ve already learned in your current position and enhance them. Taking classes in leadership pathways prove that you’re willing to do the work you need to have the credentials that back up your performance.
Additionally, with courses that provide up-to-date concepts and training, you’re sure to find some new ideas to help you shine in your work environment. By adding coursework in business, you demonstrate flexibility and a willingness to grow and adapt to the current marketplace. A leader who demonstrates flexibility and a willingness to learn is a valuable asset to any company.
The Right Kind of Attention
Taking business courses will help you understand your audience when it comes to the industry you’re working in. Business courses help you understand how to appeal to the audience you’re working with and how to get buy-in for your ideas from your colleagues and leaders. By learning how to get the right kind of attention for the work you do, you’re proving your value to the company, and boosting your salary will be your next step!
Another benefit of adding business coursework to your repertoire is that they teach you problem solving models that you can implement in a variety of situations. Oftentimes, without the right training, we tend to apply the same solutions to the same problems over and over again. With your new business training, you can be the voice of innovation and ideas for new approaches to the old and the new problems your industry faces. If you’re looking for a way to enhance your analytical and problem-solving skills, business certificates can get you there.
Washington Technical Institute
Washington Technical Institute’s fully online certificates can be completed in a matter of months, with daily or bi-weekly start dates. Such flexible start dates make these programs unique and much more accessible for our students. Most of our certificates can be earned as a self-paced program, meaning that you can work at your own pace to complete your work, even finishing early if you have the time and motivation to do so. An additional benefit of WTI’s programs is that we offer affordable pricing and monthly payments to help our students leave school without debt.
Although our goal is to help our students graduate their programs with little to no debt, we also recognize that some students might need to utilize a loan for their educational investment. We are excited to announce our partnerships with Meritize Financial Assistance, Climb Credit, or Ascent, student lending companies focused on financing career-building programs.
