The world changes – and so do careers.

25 years In 25 years’ time, it’s thought that half of today’s professions will have disappeared. This means that we’re all travelling into the unknown. But it will be an adventure of discovery, full of unexpected, stimulating and exciting challenges. Of course, technology will be the key to this transformation, but it will still be a secondary player. The real protagonists will be people and they will need the right skills to act effectively.

Mind the skills gap

What is the skills gap?

The skills gap is all about the difference between the skills possessed by those who are looking for employment and the skills that employers actually require. This gap is getting bigger as the technological progress gathers pace. It’s a challenge which is present right across the world and it has direct effects on the economy: it can increase unemployment and reduce business productivity.

How can we close this gap?

As an educational institution, CEU UCH is part of the solution. This University has pioneered the targeted development and certification of specific transferable skills and competences, and we can ensure these skills are easily recognizable by employers.

Employers are looking for people with the skills you possess – we can bring you together.

We can certify your competencies using Open Badge technology

When selecting potential employees, business associates or investment partners, decision-makers need to know whether the people under consideration have the right skills and competencies. Having a degree is the first filter, but after that, the specific competencies that you possess can make you stand out and even make you the ideal candidate.

To streamline the selection process, recruitment portals like LinkedIn enable employers to search for candidates by competencies.


What is a micro-credential?

  • - A micro-credential is a digital badge, recognizing and certifying that a person possesses a particular competency.
  • - Their purpose is to make people with the sought-after skills more visible. They make it easier for employers to find candidates with the competencies they need.
  • - Employers trust micro-credentials, as they can click on a micro-credential and see how the person has acquired that competency.
