DELL EMC collaborates with colleges and universities worldwide under the External Research and Academic Alliance, a program in the Corporate Office of the CTO. The Academic Alliance program focus helps prepare students for successful careers in a transforming IT industry. We offer a unique ‘open’ curriculum-based education on a number of technology topics such as cloud computing, big data analytics, and information storage and management. All courseware and faculty training are offered at no cost to qualifying higher education institutions. Officially launched in 2006, the Academic Alliance partners’ network has grown to more than 2.600 institutions, in over 90 countries. Faculty participants have delivered Dell EMC courseware to more than 500,000 students globally. Dell EMC pledges support to the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition under our Academic Alliance program, by strengthening alliances with our existing member institutions in Europe and encouraging new institutions to enroll, which will enable faculty to offer the Dell EMC ICT skills to a greater number of students.
