Rawls Launches Digital Badge Program to Give Students Competitive Edge

In an effort to highlight students’ strengths on increasingly popular social networking sites such as LinkedIn, the Rawls College of Business now offers digital badges. These badges provide students a competitive edge when utilizing social networks during their job search.

Badges serve as endorsements that the student possesses a skill set or has held a leadership role, as students must apply for and have met specific criteria to receive each badge. The Rawls College confirms that the student has met the requirements to earn the badge; thus, a digital badge verifies the student’s leadership or professional experience.
