Udacity is partnering with Egypt to reskill citizens for high-paid government work like software development. Over an 18 month period, the estimated value of wages generated by Nanodegree graduates will be over 200 million USD, a 12x return on investment to the Egyptian government, according to program estimates.*
"We're bringing the best of Silicon Valley technology and know-how to our young population to prepare them to compete in the global market. This program is so much more than training; it's about ensuring that graduates improve their livelihoods and, in turn, benefit the economy and transform Egypt into a technology hub."-H.E. Dr. Amr Talaat, Egypt's Minister of Communications and Information Technology
The Misk Academy in Saudi Arabia came to Udacity with an ambitious target: employing 40,000 individuals by 2025. Udacity has played an important role in helping Misk Academy achieve 50% of its goal. By delivering end-to-end Nanodegree programs designed to equip learners with job-ready skills, mentoring them through certificate completion, and then preparing them to find jobs, we have positively impacted the careers of 7,209 graduates thus far.
"Nothing compares to my experience with Udacity courses. These opportunities helped me ace an elite full-time job as a Digital Marketing Lead. I am also working as a session lead with Udacity to help new generations of students graduate from Nanodegree programs and find proper jobs."-Abdurrahman Alshanquiti, Udacity student, Misk Academy, Saudi Arabia
