Open Badge is a digital badge for visually displaying skills and competencies. Haaga-Helia is issuing a badge to all students who complete 60 credits or more during the academic year (1.8.-31.7.).
Students can display their badge in various services that support the Open Badge concept. Such services include the Kyvyt.fi ePortfolio service used by Haaga-Helia, Facebook, Linkedln, Twitter and Google+.
To any future employers, Haaga-Helia's Open Badge will display a determined approach to the goals and commitment to achieve these. These are important characteristics that employers also value.
