Anglia Ruskin University and CNet Training link up to help data centre leaders thrive
Ever wondered what happens when you take money out of a cash machine, or where the BBC iPlayer is housed? It’s all down to data centres – and soon, firms like Amazon, Google and Microsoft could send top professionals to Anglia Ruskin University to hone leadership skills.
Anglia Ruskin has teamed up with CNet Training to help leaders and senior managers working in data centre facilities to transform their careers by developing a Masters degree in the subject.
Data centres play a huge role in modern life. Without them, there would be no online shopping, social media or anything else hosted on the internet – and modern life as we know it would become unrecognisable.
Leadership and management skills are just as important as technical skills for keeping these centres running, making the new Masters degree absolutely essential to further develop and enhance skills and ultimately form the elite group of data centre professionals.
CNet Training is the world leader in professional education and training to data centre professionals and its clients include major and highly recognised multinational organisations across the globe. The aim of the collaboration is to unite two forward-thinking educational organisations to introduce new top level learning within the data centre industry to benefit both individuals and the industry itself.
