Wizeline Academy plans to certify 10K graduates for technical roles in 2018
Education for the jobs of tomorrow
Technology services are in high demand and expected to grow 15% year-over-year in Mexico. Software jobs are also expected to increase by 8.6%. To bring these high-paying jobs within reach for more people, Wizeline and Tecnológico de Monterrey are proud to launch TEC Certifications for Wizeline Academy courses.
Students who enter this program will have the opportunity to learn skills through hands-on courses with industry experts from Wizeline and other technology firms.
“This collaboration between Tecnológico de Monterrey and Wizeline Academy creates a modern academic ecosystem that will train the best technologists with the necessary skills to innovate,” said Wendy Johansson, vice president of Wizeline Academy.
Growing technical talent in Mexico
These certifications from Tecnológico de Monterrey, as part of the School of Engineering and Sciences, are an educational effort that seeks to give back to the Mexican communities where Wizeline has large operations. Wizeline Academy democratizes technology and innovation through courses that unlock the most valuable technological skills for the current landscape. The main objective of the partnership is to empower the local tech community with the knowledge and power to innovate.
“I firmly believe that this initiative will generate an important milestone in the development of our region, and this program will expand rapidly,” said Mario Adrián Flores Castro, Vice President of the Western Region of Tecnológico de Monterrey.
Wizeline Academy will offer a TEC certification in Engineering Leadership, to form a network of technical leaders in Mexico prepared to face the industry’s challenges. This certification will be the first of its kind in Mexico and will be based on the leadership principles of Silicon Valley. Each course will be adapted to the skills and needs of Mexican leaders.
New courses for Design Thinking and Product Management
Wizeline Academy will start offering other certifications such as Design Thinking, Product Management, and React.js, and many others. All courses are composed of courses with expert leaders, world-class projects to apply new concepts, collaboration between peers to develop interpersonal skills, as well as one-on-one tutoring to offer personalized learning and growth. Each Wizeline Academy course is taught by industry experts who are highly-trained leaders in their field.
