On 15 August 2017, MMU Melaka was glad to have Ms. Judy Wong and Mr. Azzam from Google to brief students on the Google Ignite programme. The Google Ignite Talk was held in CLC Lecture Hall 3 and was attended by more than 180 students from Faculty of Business (FOB).
The programme was organised in tandem with steps taken by Google to select MMU as its partner in promoting Google Ignite, a training-to-internship programme that offers opportunities to university students to be Google Adwords Certified and secure internship opportunities with top organisations and online marketing agencies in the country.
In this programme, Google Ignite participants were exposed to online marketing essentials provided by Google. Then, they are required to pass the Advertising Fundamentals Exam and one of the two Advanced Exams (Advanced Search and Advanced Display exams) by 30 September 2017 in order to be Google AdWords Certified. Thanks to Google and initiative led by Marketing Team of FOB, until 20 September 2017, FOB had secured 103 certified students from 174 signups.
