Dublin-headquartered e-learning company Digital Marketing Institute (DMI) has signed €2m worth of partnerships with educational institutions in the UK, Costa Rica and Panama.
The deals come on the heels of an earlier deal the Digital Marketing Institute won worth €1.6m with the London School of Marketing.
In Central America, the Digital Marketing Institute has chosen to partner with Cenfotec University, which specialises in digital technology studies across its two campuses in Costa Rica and soon to be launched in Panama.
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 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.
“These new partnerships, valued collectively at over €2m, bring the Digital Marketing Institute’s global partnerships to 13 institutions across four continents,” the president and founder of the Digital Marketing Institute, Ian Dodson, said.
“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,” Dodson added.
