The announcement comes after Engageli collaborated with ESMT and the African Institute for Mathematical Science on a five-week employability program for STEM graduates earlier this year.
The Industry Immersion Africa© program offered a “hands-on” curriculum through a blended-learning approach using Engageli’s digital learning platform. The 51 STEM graduates were taught across four locations simultaneously: AIMS Ghana, AIMS Rwanda, AIMS South Africa, and Strathmore University in Kenya.
“Engageli’s highly interactive and engaging digital learning platform was an incredible asset to our Industry Immersion Africa© program, and we’re thrilled to extend our partnership to our Global Online MBA,” said Nick Barniville, associate dean for degree programs and edtech at ESMT Berlin.
“These capabilities are invaluable in providing students with the skills and experience they need for success in business”
“Engageli allows us to seamlessly bring students together, across geographies, to share knowledge and skills.
“In our globalised world, these capabilities are invaluable in providing students with the skills and experience they need for success in business.”
Instructors were also based in multiple locations, from Berlin to Canada, working alongside staff at the African university centres.
“ESMT Berlin is making an impressive educational impact at a global scale,” said Dan Avida, co-founder and CEO of Engageli.
“This transformative opportunity is possible for thousands of students because of ESMT’s dedication to implementing innovative technology across its programs. We’re thrilled to partner with ESMT to support collaborative courses and help build connections between students and instructors across borders via our platform.”
During the Global Online MBA program, instructors will use Engageli to design dynamic, interactive classes, and provide differentiated instruction and personalised support by leveraging real-time engagement data.
Founded in 2020, Engageli has raised over $47 million in funding, including $33m in Series A round earlier in 2021.
