Melbourne, Victoria – 21 April 2021: The next generation of qualified digital marketing professionals across the Asia-Pacific region will this week be able to utilise a newly-formed, online education platform created by the renowned Monarch Institute. Known as the Digital Academy, it will launch on 22 April with a comprehensive menu of digital marketing courses.
Monarch Institute is a fully accredited education institution based in Melbourne, Australia, and is at the forefront of skills training in the competitive and fast-paced world of digital marketing. Adding the Digital Academy to its portfolio will further its reputation as a hugely influential training provider, with the academy aiming to quickly become the leading digital marketing course provider in the region.
Monarch Institute’s CEO, Nick Chapman, said this is a significant development for the region’s students. “We already enjoy a strong reputation,” he remarked, “which brings with it a great deal of trust and expectations of high standards – things we know will be upheld with the Digital Academy.
“For four years Monarch has partnered with the Digital Marketing Institute [DMI], which is the international gold standard in digital marketing certification. Our menu of courses has been developed with them, so our students are in the safest possible hands.”
DMI CEO, Ken Fitzpatrick, added: “As industries continue to embrace digital innovation, it’s more important than ever that graduates are prepared with the critical skills needed for this transformation. We are very excited to partner with Monarch/Digital Academy to unlock a path to lifelong learning by offering our Professional Certification to students across the Asia-Pacific region.”
