Facebook partners with the Mohammed bin Rashid School for Communication (MBRSC) at the American University in Dubai, to launch a dedicated Blueprint program to empower pre-professional students with Facebook Advertising knowledge, and introduce them to partners for internship opportunities, to provide them with real-life experience before they are hired for full-time roles.
The pilot program targets 150 students for a 6-month course, which will begin with a month-longBlueprint online course, followed by in-person training for four weeks. Students will then be invited to a career fair to set up opportunities for them to meet brands and agencies with available internships. After the completion of the internship, students can then take the Blueprint Certification Exam to complete the course.
Dr. Carol Melhem-Moufarrej, Associate Dean of the Mohammed Bin Rashid School for Communication (MBRSC) at the American University in Dubai (AUD) said “Here at AUD, and the MBRSC, we are pleased with this privileged agreement. This will facilitate our students’ ability to earn the Facebook Certification and an internship at prominent media and marketing companies in Dubai through an exclusive job fair organized by Facebook.
Yasser Noueiry, Agency Partner at Facebook, added: “As our business continues to grow in the region, our goal is to equip talented rising marketing professionals with a profound knowledge of Facebook’s family of apps and services. Through our partnership with AUD, we look forward to empowering a new generation of marketers in the region and inspire other universities in the region to offer Facebook’s Blueprint programs amongst junior students.”
