MARA Graduate Uses New Partnership Between SJSU and ICRM to Quickly Obtain CRA Certification

“SJSU’s MARA program curriculum covered every area of records management and I particularly like that the curriculum is continually evaluated and updated to align with the job market and emerging trends in the records profession. The program also really helped me to embrace the changes brought about [in my career] as a result of emerging technologies.  The program offered tools to develop solutions that can be used in any industry.”
