AUD to offer Facebook marketing courses
American University of Dubai to offer students professional certification in Facebook advertising
Facebook has announced a partnership with the Mohammed bin Rashid School for Communication (MBRSC) at the American University in Dubai, to train students in how to use Facebook Advertising.
The pilot program targets 150 marketing students for a six-month course, which will begin with a month-long Blueprint online course, followed by in-person training for four weeks. Students will then be invited to a career fair to set up opportunities for them to meet brands and agencies with available internships. After the completion of the internship, students can then take the Blueprint Certification Exam to complete the course.
Dr. Carol Melhem-Moufarrej, Associate Dean of the Mohammed Bin Rashid School for Communication (MBRSC) at the American University in Dubai (AUD) said: "Here at AUD, and the MBRSC, we are pleased with this privileged agreement. This will facilitate our students' ability to earn the Facebook Certification and an internship at prominent media and marketing companies in Dubai through an exclusive job fair organised by Facebook."
Yasser Noueiry, Agency Partner at Facebook, added: "As our business continues to grow in the region, our goal is to equip talented rising marketing professionals with a profound knowledge of Facebook's family of apps and services. Through our partnership with AUD, we look forward to empowering a new generation of marketers in the region and inspire other universities in the region to offer Facebook's Blueprint programs amongst junior students."
