What is the IBM Academic Initiative?

Established in 2005, the IBM Academic Initiative allows and encourages educators, students and researchers at accredited academic institutions to leverage IBM tools, courses, and other resources in the classroom.  Our mission is to enable students to graduate with direct hands-on experience with "industrial strength" tools that will help them in their chosen careers.

Go to the IBM Academic Initiative, register with your student email address, and take a course to earn a foundational badge in cyber security, data science, cloud, or artificial intelligence. These skills will enhance your degree and make you stand out from other applicants.
