“It is great to see the momentum that the IAB Europe Endorsement Programme is gaining, as the benefits for initiatives in the field of education carrying the Endorsed aegis come to light. These are truly leading programmes in their markets and indeed Europe as a whole. We are honoured to support them and have the National members which develop and deliver them be part of our Education and Training Committee. It is through their continuous efforts that pan-European standards for education in digital training are being elevated”, said Neslihan Olcay, Chair of the IAB Europe Education and Training Committee and CEO of Wavemaker Turkey.
IAB Italy Creates New Digital Lab and continues certifying Programmatic Specialists
Through its latest initiative, IAB Italy aims to renew its educational proposal with new courses dedicated to current and future professionals in the digital world. The courses combine theory with practice and will be conducted in a "laboratory" formula: each lesson will be enriched by practical exercises in the classroom under the constant observation of teachers.
The organisation is also continuing to certify much needed specialists in programmatic. This programme aims to provide access to in-depth coverage of technological platforms for programmatic buying, selling and combine them with the knowledge of traditional media spaces.
IAB Spain Provides Programmatic Ad Essentials
Already covering a wide range of topics through an expansive course catalogue, the IAB Spain course on programmatic trading acknowledges the revolution in this field and the fact that now, more than ever, a deep understanding of the changing landscape and indeed ecosystem, is a must for all marketeers. IAB Spain’s mission in education is to develop technical knowledge in order to further enhance marketing skills in the Spanish industry.
IAB Austria Focuses on Future Digital Careers
The course offered by IAB Austria introduces all relevant areas of digital marketing: from market overview to technical and economic fundamentals to creation and planning strategy. The full-time modules are held three times a year in Vienna and offer attendees the opportunity to build knowledge, get answers to their questions and make important contacts for their future career.
“For many organisations across Europe education represents an area of focus in the continuous pursuit to combat the talent shortage and skill gap that currently afflict the digital industry. It is vital that the efforts of those taking the initiative to train the future ranks of digital talent be recognised and supported. Markets in Italy, Austria, and Spain - to name just the latest addition to the list of endorsed programmes - benefit from an impressive offering of digital training, which we are now proud to endorse”, said Alex Macarescu, Programme Manager, IAB Europe.
