SAMSUNG SDS enters Canadian IT educational industry


Samsung SDS (CEO Hong-Ki Kim) has become the first Korean company to enter the Canadian IT educational industry. Foreign IT educational institutions have entered the Korean market in the past, but this is the first for a Korean company to export its offline educational infrastructure overseas.





Samsung SDS announced on August 24 that it is entering overseas IT educational industry with the signing of a strategic alliance agreement with N. G. Noel, Vice President of Kingston College (www.kingstoncollege.net) of British Columbia Canada for IT educational contents.



This project is an expansion of Samsung SDS' "ITclick" (www.ITclick.co.kr), which has been Samsung Multicampus' nation-wide project to improve the quality of IT education. Samsung Multicampus had announced earlier this year that it will help educate more than 20,000 IT specialists per year through the use of 4 colleges and 14 IT educational institution in 13 cities that have had relatively less opportunities.





Beginning with the strategic alliance with Kingston College, Samsung Multicampus plans to export IT education to colleges through out the world by expanding its franchise for overseas colleges and educational institutions. Within this year, Samsung Multicampus plans to wrap up negotiations with colleges in China and Japan, and pursue strategic alliance with colleges in the U.S. and Australia.


At the same time, Samsung Multicampus plans to operate an internship program for employment in overseas IT companies, which is expected to result in more than "education" by bridging the traditional programs abroad at local colleges that have been overly concentrated on language learning.





Noel, Vice President of Kingston College commented, "Popularity of language programs in Canada have been on the rise, as it is an English-speaking region with reasonable educational costs, and we decided to join with Samsung to provide differentiated educational opportunities as students have shown much interest in IT education."




Byung-Soo Ryu, Director of Samsung Multicampus said, "Samsung Multicampus is ready to tap overseas markets with its of high quality educational contents, strict certification process for instructors and complete manual of educational management." He added that Samsung Multicampus will continue forging strategic ties with overseas colleges in order to become a world's leading IT educational institution.
