Executive Certificate in Agile Development

The Executive Certificate in Agile Development from Saint Louis University

ASPE has partnered with Saint Louis University's AACSB accredited Richard A. Chaifetz School of Business to provide continuing education Executive Certificate programs on the most critical SDLC job roles.

Why Offer a Certificate in Agile Methods?

Agile development methods are no longer just grassroots movements. Since the Agile Manifesto was authored in 2001, Agile has gone mainstream. With the broadening of these practices we've seen a proliferation in trainers, consultants, and an entire ecosystem of Agile knowledge, with very few standards in place to provide assurance that knowledge sources are legitimate or adequately pedigreed.

The Executive Certificate in Agile Development was built to ensure that credential holders have acquired real-world agile skills through active participation in five hands-on courses. ASPE and Saint Louis University wished to provide the industry with a guaranteed educational tool that ensures certificate holders can perform in real environments, maintain best practices, and consistently deliver successful results.
