MSU Denver

Your on-ramp to job, career, and academic success

MSU Denver’s Career Launchpad provides affordable pathways to high-demand careers and multiple academic credentials.

You can take a noncredit course in a high-demand field that can lead to a job, or convert the course to credit and get an MSU Denver certificate or degree.

The Career Launchpad offers training in high-demand industries, and classes are taught by MSU Denver faculty. All classes are eight weeks long and in a self-paced online format.

How Career Launchpad works

Career Launchpad offers introductory classes in several high-demand fields, with more added every semester.

Each class has different career and academic pathways for students. You can take the noncredit introductory class and immediately enter the workforce. Or you can convert the noncredit class to credit and continue your education at MSU Denver.

After successfully completing one of the classes, you will receive a digital badge embedded with the competencies learned. You can include this badge on your resume, LinkedIn page, portfolio, or share it with an employer. Students will also receive a certificate of completion.

Flexible schedule

The classes are just eight weeks long, entirely online, and self-paced.

Career advisement

You will receive a personal advising session with an industry leader.

High job demand

You can enhance their resumes with critical skills.
