Envisage Global & Belhaven University

Envisage Global and Belhaven University have formed a strategic alliance to deliver high quality continuing education options where students can earn college credit for completed courses.  Envisage Global provides high-demand skills courses that are assessed by Belhaven University for college credit through a process called Prior Learning Assessment (PLA). Through this alliance, Envisage Global and Belhaven University bring together industry experts and educational opportunities for anyone wishing to gain new skills and advance their education.  As a result, many certificates earned through Envisage Global can also be applied as academic credit toward Belhaven University undergraduate degree programs.

Envisage Global is unique by virtue of its relationships with industry experts as well as its affiliation with Belhaven University. The trends are clear: ancillary to degree programs, a significant number of learners are seeking certificates, certifications, and badges that can be immediately applied to achieve career and personal goals.

Envisage Global is well positioned to meet the skill development needs industry requires of employees, and students desire to differentiate themselves. Our strategic partnership with best-in-class industry experts and Belhaven University academics, enhances our quality and provides education options consistent with near-term demand for practical application of academic theory.
