[TAGUIG CITY, 04 August 2023] — MDI Novare has solidified its partnership with the University of San Carlos (USC) in Cebu City and reaffirmed its commitment to champion world-class Filipino tech talent through the Faculty Immersion and Training (FIT) Program under Novare University, MDI Novare’s flagship bootcamp program.
As part of this landmark collaboration, a delegation of faculty members from USC embarked on a week-long immersive experience at the MDI Novare office in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, where they were able to gain first-hand insights into the inner workings of a dynamic tech company, observe industry best practices, and engage in meaningful dialogues with some of MDI Novare’s experts.
Father Francisco Antonio T. Estepa, SVD, PhD, President of University of San Carlos, expressed his gratitude for this partnership with MDI Novare. “This partnership will help nurture our young talents and equip them with industry-relevant knowledge to bridge the skills gap between the academe and the tech industry,” he added.
“It’s my first time to experience an actual immersion, this is truly helpful for instructors like myself who want to keep up-to-date with industry standards, especially in the ever-evolving technology industry,” said Khent Dela Paz, a faculty member and ICT Coordinator who has been with USC for about eight years now. “It’s a totally different experience when you hear it and learn it from the people in the front lines,” he added.
