Part of the Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdul Aziz Foundation, the MiSK Academy has just launched their third edition of the MiSK Udacity Program. The program is in collaboration with Udacity, which encourages people to develop their skills in the ever-growing and progressive digital world.
With many keen to get on the program, the MiSK Udacity Program received over 6,000 applications. Out of those, 1,900 were accepted to the online courses dedicated to digital marketing, programming, data and artificial intelligence.
Along with the digital course, students embarking on the courses that are based in Makkah and Riyadh will also have access to a weekly mentorship with their tutors as well as seminars that will be held at various locations across the kingdom.
The MiSK Udacity Program is a progressive take on education in Saudi Arabia for the kingdom’s future tech pioneers. It will encourage and enhance the technical knowledge of those looking for employment within the Saudi job market, and will also raise their employability within the kingdom’s digital sector.
MiSK’s academic methodology has been proven to present a wide-ranging educational program that begins with training and ends with encouraging and enabling graduates of the courses to obtain roles within the market, and to compete in the sector at international levels. It has been reported that within 6 months of completing the program, 65% of the graduates progress rapidly within their careers.
A non-profit organization, MiSK’s objective is to educate and offer up opportunities for the next generation of Saudis, and easing them into a successful future under Vision 2030.
