“This is not an era of change, but the change of an era”
We are building the leading educational group for the digital era.
WHO WE ARE AND OUR STORY
In September 2020, Magnum Partners, the leading private equity fund in Spain and Portugal, and the founders of ISDI, the leading school in digital business, joined forces to develop an educational project that will soon be joined by other leading institutions such as Skylab Coders (December 2020), ISDE (February 2021), ESERP (May 2021), IEBS (October 2021), GMQTECH (January 2022), as well as the start-up accelerator, IMPACT.
All of them form DIGITALENT: a global group with a focus on excellence in education for the digital age in order to accelerate employability, entrepreneurship and business transformation.
DIGITALENT is a selectively global project based in Spain, with a presence in Latin America, the United States and some European countries (France, Italy and Portugal), that offers higher education programmes such as master’s degrees, executive courses, degrees, training cycles, certifications, in-company training sessions and acceleration of start-ups.
The schools of the DIGITALENT group are leaders in their respective markets of specialisation and they occupy strategic positions within expansive educational environments in which digitalisation is an urgent need. Together, they provide more than 35 years of experience, knowledgeable training and connections with employability in the digital, technological and programming sectors, as well as those for legal, business, and humanities, with more than 60 000 students having been trained.
As a group, these institutions benefit from academic, digital and market synergies, implementing content as well as leading methodologies and technologies for education in the digital age. For all these reasons, DIGITALENT programmes teach what is not learned through other training routes.
“DIGITALENT is Digital, Innovation in Technology and Educational Methodology, Sustainability, Competitiveness, Employment, Entrepreneurship and Transformation”
PURPOSE, VISION AND MISSION
Transform higher education to positively manage the transition into the digital age, by contributing to the creation of a more just, sustainable and egalitarian world in which no one is left behind.
To do this, we will build an educational model capable of responding to the challenges, needs and opportunities generated in this new and exciting era, driven by the most innovative methodologies and technologies for learning and by our profound knowledge of the academic and digital environment.
In this manner, we will help students, professionals, entrepreneurs, companies and institutions to be competitive in the search for employment, entrepreneurship development and the transformation of companies into the digital age, seeking educational excellence and operating in a sustainable way.
MOST INNOVATIVE ACADEMIC METHODOLOGIES AND EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGIES
ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE AND EMPLOYABILITY
DIGITALENT Group has extensive academic experience in the delivery of undergraduate, graduate and professional training: all of its schools have already trained more than 60 000 students. The classes are taught face-to-face, online and in hybrid format at its campuses in Madrid, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Oviedo, Mexico City, Montevideo, Boston, New York and through the best platforms for online training.
The faculty of DIGITALENT institutions is composed of a combination of doctors and expert professors, together with leading experts and professionals, coming out of companies and from around the world in each one of the different specialisation areas. It includes agreements with numerous Spanish, American, and British universities as well as others from around the world.
In addition, DIGITALENT is at the forefront of education technologies (EdTech) as a pioneer in the management of quality e-learning platforms or in the authentication of diplomas through Blockchain. It includes strategic academic agreements to provide official training and certifications from the main digital players such as Google or Salesforce.
DIGITALENT is at the forefront of job creation, with many programmes where employability is very close to 100 %. The specialisation of DIGITALENT institutions within their respective verticals and its continuous contact with the industry makes it possible to identify and anticipate new professions and capacities that emerge from digitisation and therefore continuously update the academic content of programmes with the skills and abilities that meet the needs the company is demanding. This is complemented by numerous employability agreements with companies and an extensive job bank.
In parallel, DIGITALENT has an incubator and one of the most important start-up accelerators in Europe, which allows it to channel the entrepreneurial activity of its alumni.
