Digital Skills Academy, the Dublin headquartered provider of world-leading accredited online International Bachelor of Science Degrees in Digital Skills, today announced that South Africa's largest telecommunications company, MTN, has partnered with Digital Skills Academy to upskill their corporate teams in Africa. This follows Digital Skills Academy’s partnerships with South Africa’s number one retail bank, Standard Bank, and the leading South African andglobal professional services firm, KPMG to support the digital transformation of these companies.

With a newly opened office in Johannesburg, South Africa, Digital Skills Academy, which is an Enterprise Ireland supported company, has facilitated this international expansion by making the transition from the traditional model of classrooms to a fully online environment, pioneering the latest developments in online learning and virtual team-working technologies to deliver its innovative digital industry-linked programmes globally. This transition has enabled Digital Skills Academy to offer their Internationally-recognised programmes to participants from all over the world - opening up a unique opportunity for the exchange of ideas on a global scale.

Commenting on Digital Skills Academy’s international expansion, Paul Dunne, Founder & CEO of Digital Skills Academy, said: “Our unique learning process requires participants to work in cross-functional virtual teams on industry-assigned digital projects – the skills required to work in these types of teams is a skillset increasingly sought after by employers globally. We are very pleased to work with South Africa’s largest telecommunications company to help unlock the digital skills potential of its corporate teams.”
