Amazon Education + Industry Collaborating to Build a Cloud Workforce

In this session, you’ll hear from higher education institutions on how they’re using data on careers and skills to map back to educational competencies.  From cloud degrees to non-traditional certificate options, pathways and accreditations into high tech careers emerge in various forms. Leaders from three  institutions will share why they are going “all in” on cloud education, how AWS Educate has become the backbone for success, and best practices for other institutions that want to prepare students for the cloud careers of tomorrow.

Moderator: Andrew Ko, Global Education Director, AWS
