Our program also enables today's most innovative organizations to help their teams, executives, and employees gain in-demand skills and experience needed to grow their careers and positively impact their company's bottom line.

Emory Continuing Education

As a leading research university, we keep abreast of the latest workforce trends, following areas of job growth and decline, as well as anticipating where the greatest opportunities and needs may be for the workforce of the future.

Emory Continuing Education (ECE) exists to enrich the lives and enhance the careers of non-traditional students by providing excellence in education, and advancing Emory's commitment to create, preserve, teach, and apply knowledge. We provide a platform for continuous workforce development, including courses and certificate programs, non-credit education for professional development and personal enrichment, and a variety of corporate learning programs.

Eagle Essentials - Career Preparation for Students

Lifelong learning begins as a student and continues long after leaving campus. Wherever you are in your journey, Emory provides opportunities to learn. Students can take advantage of the winter break by enrolling in one non-credit academic or professional skills course to build-out their co-curricular transcript.

The courses are delivered online and provide instruction on topics relevant to life both inside and outside the classroom, and are available free to all Emory University undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students.

Most courses are designed to be completed over 4-8 weeks, though the material and assessments are entirely self-paced.

Emory's Coursera courses are taught by university faculty and are a great option to explore a new subject to advance career goals, dig into a new subject or just learn more about the work of Emory scholars. Visit the Coursera website to find our course listing.
