The Best Online UX courses to Enroll in 2024

Product, UX & UI Design is one of the hottest skills of 2020. With a huge influx of innovative products with novel business design and interface design  applications on phone and the web, it becomes all the more important to provide the end user with a “good” experience. By that we mean, the user shouldn’t have to flip through user manuals to know how to use your product.

Hence, the field of design has become all the more lucrative in terms of remuneration, popularity and demand (and swag too!). While there are self-taught designers doing well in the market, it’s always beneficial to have certifications that can help open a few doors! Here are our top picks-
