Pega’s University Program has long been one of our best kept secrets, and now it is a leading supplier of recent graduates into the marketplace. The program offers clients and partners access to a steady pipeline of Pega certified resources upon graduation allowing organizations to meet their growing demands.
How does all of this work? It’s easy! Pega works with universities around the world by integrating our certification courses into elective options. Pega joins forces with the university to certify the professors to teach, but more importantly, to prepare students to utilize dynamic, in-demand, Pega skills. Through this process, the students learn skills that can lead to internships and full-time placements with Pega clients, partners and Pega directly.
The university students learn from guest lecturers from leading System Implementers (SIs) as well as from Fortune 500 companies. Pega’s Solution Consultant Mentorship Program provides guidance to students and professors to help pass the certification exam. Pega even provides the students the opportunity to sit for an exam up to three times in a year at no cost!
Pega also has a Job Board to help bridge the gap between university students and our clients/ partners around the world. The focus is on building supply of certified resources through the University Program while increasing demand by helping clients and partners post open positions they are looking to fill from internships to full-time placements. The University Program team also works closely with students to help them make direct connections with clients and partners that are hiring in their local area.
