About Sage Skills

Practical skills for academic and professional success

The Sage Skills suite helps students to develop the vital academic and professional skills necessary to succeed in higher education and beyond.  Supporting an array of knowledge areas, the Sage Skills suite was developed to support institutions and libraries in their mission to deliver on improved students outcomes. This suite of brand-new digital resources includes:
Business Skills

Empower students to develop and practice real-world skills needed to successfully transition from campus to the modern workplace through interactive self-assessment, virtual scenarios, downloadable data, and expert insights. This new interactive digital resource features both academic and practitioner experts in a library of flexible learning tracks across 950 in-demand topics across five in-demand categories. Supporting a wide range of courses, Business Skills offers students a self-guided journey to gain the career-ready skill sets essential for professional success.

Student Success

Empower students to develop and practice the academic and personal skills necessary to successfully transition to campus life and enable lifelong learning. With over 90 skills and more than 1,100 topics across ten comprehensive modules, Student Success provides a flexible and engaging learning journey through self-assessments, interactive scenarios, downloadable exercises, original videos, and more.

Sage worked closely with a global team of scholars and professionals to identify and develop the critical and practical skills throughout the Sage Skills suite. Our resources were built with the busy modern student in mind, providing built-in flexibility compared to traditional online course modules that allows students to independently direct their learning experience by enabling them to choose to progress through a full skill module, learn best practices for a particular skill, or home in on a very specific topic of interest.
