Microsoft has now partnered with leading online education service OpenClassrooms to train students for AI jobs in the workplace. OpenClassrooms will recruit 1,000 promising students throughout France, the UK, and the U.S.
The collaboration is designed to provide more students with access to education to learn in-demand skills and to qualify for high-tech jobs, while giving employers access to great talent to fill high-tech roles.
This is a fully online program that is designed to produce high-quality graduates. Students who complete this program are guaranteed a job within six months or they will receive a full refund from OpenClassrooms.
“The demand for AI and machine learning opportunities has never been stronger,” says OpenClassrooms co-founder and CEO Pierre Dubuc. “We’re excited to be an innovation partner to Microsoft to usher in new tactics that will bring top talent to the workforce.”
“As AI is changing the way we work and the nature of jobs, we have a responsibility to ensure graduates are prepared for the workplace of tomorrow,” says Jean-Philippe Courtois, Executive Vice President and President, Global Sales, Marketing and Operations at Microsoft. “We are excited to partner with OpenClassrooms to help equip people with the skills and opportunities they need to thrive in the digital economy.”
