Dublin's Digital Marketing Institute (DMI) today said it has extended the global reach of its certified digital training through new partnerships with educational institutions in the UK, Costa Rica and Panama worth E2m.
This will bring its digital education programme to 1,000 students over the next two years.
In Central America, the DMI will partner with Cenfotec University, which specialises in digital technology studies across its two campuses in Costa Rica and soon to be launched, Panama. The university has a proven track record of providing first class ICT and digital education, offering accredited programmes with Cisco, Oracle and IBM. It was the first Central American institution to offer industry tailored software engineering programmes and will now spearhead Central America's first formal education programme in digital marketing through its partnership with the Digital Marketing Institute.
In the UK, the Digital Marketing Institute is partnering with the North East Sales and Marketing Academy (nesma), an institution founded by Chartered Marketer, Veronica Swindale. nesma was selected as the training partner for the North East region because its teaching programme clearly reflects the Digital Marketing Institute's own principles of recruiting top industry practitioner-lecturers and offering a flexible programme of study to accommodate working professionals.
President and Founder of the Digital Marketing Institute, Ian Dodson says the new deals extend its global reach.
"These new partnerships, valued collectively at over E2 million, bring the Digital Marketing Institute's global partnerships to 13 institutions across 4 continents. We will continue to focus on growing our partnership programme, selecting the very best education institutions to teach our accredited digital marketing courses. This in turn will help bridge the global digital marketing skills gap by arming candidates with the industry-relevant skills needed to succeed in this rapidly developing marketplace."
