This holds true for graduate Iñaki Longa, who completed our software development and data science certificates and is now an operations analyst at Apple Maps. “It quickly became apparent to me that if I wanted to advance my career, I’d have to invest time and effort into learning new skills that are valuable in the tech industry. I found myself limited in what I could do and I wanted to reach higher. This was the turning point as I became highly motivated to invest in my continuing education.”
Or marketing certificate Hanna Bandalier, marketing manager at The Ansel Adams Gallery. “I was not ready to do a full master’s degree. When I found the UC Berkeley Extension marketing certificate, I knew it was a perfect fit for me. It’s a great way to switch your expertise or gain new skills in certain areas. And the Berkeley name carries a lot of weight—a perfect choice for me.”
