DITO CME Holdings Corp., Marketing, Media and Entertainment Division of the Udenna Company, is expected to open an online learning network named the Luna Academy.
Luna Academy is set to have “cost-effective” links to certifications and diplomas from well-known technology companies such as “Microsoft, AWS and Alibaba alongside the most prominent local colleges for our countrymen,” said CME President Eric R. Alberto in an e-mailed statement on Wednesday.
The group, headed by Dennis A. Uy, has recently entered into a joint venture with the education technology firm CloudSwyft.
The online learning program that they would build will be “primarily focused on technical capabilities that are ready for work.”
The Luna Academy would promote “the timely up-skilling of the Filipino generation,” said CME.
“In the coming months, we are endeavoring to initiate a variety of job-ready courses and credentials for the whole community. We won’t end there, though. We are working diligently to set up a robust program that will connect all good learners, if they are interested, to exciting career opportunities and internship opportunities with leading global and local companies in the Philippines,” said Mr. Alberto.
In the first nine months of 2020, the listed business saw its attributable net profits rise by 38.73 per cent to P69.95 million compared to P50.42 million in the previous year.
