Singapore Management University has signed an agreement with Google Singapore to offer a new Data Analytics Programme.
This is the first time Google is extending its programme, launched in 2014, to undergraduates of a Singaporean university.
Under the work-study programme, students will undergo a six-month internship at a Google partner company and earn credit.
Google Singapore’s country director Stephanie Davis said that Google was looking to scale up the programme due to broad trends in the digital economy and increasing demand from employers for its trainees.
The inaugural batch of 25 students is in the midst of completing a 12-week digital analytics technology course prerequisite, including sessions with industry subject matter experts from Google and its partners.
