Microsoft to launch IT Academy in Denmark  

The iconic software giant aims to establish its own IT competency programme throughout Denmark's centres of learning

Microsoft is to launch its teaching programme "IT Academy" in Denmark, the company announced last week at an EU conference on IT competencies held in Copenhagen. The programme has been running successfully in the US for a number of years and will initially be offered to business schools, technical colleges and AMU centres in Denmark. In the longer term, universities and other centres of higher education will also have the opportunity to participate.


Microsoft will train a number of tutors in each academic centre, who will in turn teach the students. The course is free for students but the schools will pay a fee of up to DKK 30,000 (USD 4,000). Graduating students will be officially certificated as Microsoft users, which Microsoft believes will add weight to the graduates' list of competencies on their CVs. The IT Academy in Denmark has set itself the 2 year objective of bringing every fifth business school, technical college and AMU centre into the scheme. The news is reported by financial newspaper Børsen today.
