With an innovative and practical approach, SIBT's educational programs respond to the training needs of today's business environment, which demands professionals with knowledge and experience in technology applied to business and with a mindset of continuous learning and adaptation.
The teaching methodology follows the experiential learning based on challenges. Students will solve real IBM challenges in an international environment, thus increasing the transformative power of the educational experience. This pedagogical approach aims to train professionals with the ability to use technology and put it at the service of society to solve the challenges of a global and diverse world.
The faculty of the SIBT program is made up of professionals from IBM and other leading companies in the sector; IBM directs each of the programs, developing all the contents, guaranteeing their quality and updating at a technological and business level.
In addition, students will receive a unique experience thanks to access to IBM tools and technologies, with the possibility of participating in conferences and master classes by IBM experts and professionals and visiting some of the largest IBM business centers and laboratories in Spain or internationally, either virtually or physically.
"With the agreement with IBM and the creation of SIBT we reinforce our commitment to bring university education closer to the business world" - says Marta Muñiz, President CEO of Schiller International University - "By combining the educational excellence of Schiller with the technological and digital leadership of IBM, we train professionals with the ability to use technology and put it at the service of society to solve the challenges of the global economy, in an intelligent, creative and humanistic way. We want to teach them to question the status quo and be prepared for uncertainty.
"IBM has a longstanding commitment to education to drive digital transformation in society. In the post-COVID era, organizations are necessarily becoming more digital and demand professionals with more technology skills. Partnerships like this help align business needs with a skilled labor market so important to driving growth in the economy," says IBM's vice president of technology, Javier Valencia.
Starting January 2022, SIBT will be a space for inspiration and innovation, where knowledge transfer and transformation will act as a catalyst for interaction between university, society and business through the delivery of programs, the promotion of research, the encouragement of technology entrepreneurship and the recognition of best practices.
