Professor Ali continued, "AWS are the best at what they do, offering unrivalled support to some of the biggest brands and organisations on the planet. Who better for our students to learn from?
"From artificial intelligence, big data, cloud computing and 'Fintech', engaging with and understanding consumers is totally different to what it was twenty years ago."
The relationship will see all MBA students at UEL undertake the first module in the AWS Academy on cloud computing. In total, nine modules are available, which university students across the country can take voluntarily.
Modules cover data analytics, cloud foundations and machine learning with an assessment at the end of each pathway. By the end of the next year, the cloud computing module will become a firm fixture in all undergraduate and postgraduate business courses.
"Cloud computing, and associated business practice, is one of the most important skills modern graduates will need once they head out into the world of work," said Ken Harley, Education Director at Amazon Web Services, "and we are delighted to help develop tomorrow's leaders."
