More Than 1,000 Colleges And Universities To Date Have Joined With EMC To Close Technology Skills Gap

 "There is no question that there is a shortage of skilled professionals to manage large amounts of data, and it is critical that universities and corporations partner together to address and fill this need, as neither can fill this gap alone.  For the past three years, University of Massachusetts, Boston has participated in EMC's Academic Alliance program to teach students critical skills they will need to support business and industries as well as advance their own careers. The EMC-developed curriculum presents generic solutions to information storage and management needs and exposes meaningful examples showing state-of-the-art equipment, an approach that helps close the knowledge gap between theoretical and practical applications. The coursework has proven popular and offers a significant level of insight to our students."

Dr. M. Ponnavaiko, Vice Chancellor, SRM University, Chennai, India

"For more than four years, SRM University has offered the EMC Academic Alliance curriculum to our students. This has allowed them to learn and acquire the most important new technology skills, including cloud computing. It is important for universities to ensure their students develop the next-generation skills demanded by employers, and the EMC Academic Alliance curriculum has played a very important role in helping SRM University do this successfully. The EAA Program makes sure our students are ready with the necessary education to help fill the Industry-Academia skills gap."

EMC Executive Quote:

Howard Elias, President and COO, EMC Information Infrastructure and Cloud Services

"The careers of tomorrow, in areas like cloud architecture and data science, require that we invest in developing people with the skills required to fill those roles. That means working with our customers, our industry, and within academia to help close the skills gap and maximize the potential of technologies such as cloud computing and big data analytics. EMC believes deeply that our success, and that of our customers, is dependent upon innovation and our growing network of Academic Alliance schools, as well as our professional certification programs, are leading the way with their innovative curricula."
