What is a Microcredential?

Microcredentials are certifications of assessed competency in high-demand skillsets and knowledge areas that are industry-recognised and can be achieved in shorter timeframes than other AQF award qualifications. Aligned with the individual units of our MBA+ program, a Microcredential from AIM demonstrates the high standard of learning you have achieved and bolsters your career outcomes. On successful completion, share your Microcredential on LinkedIn and other digital platforms to display your growing professional value to current and future employers.

Your Microcredential can stand alone as an independent credential or be used as recognition towards an ABS postgraduate qualification.
