CNet Training Provides Elite Education For Data Centre Professionals


Designed and delivered by CNet Training, the Masters Degree in Data Centre Leadership and Management has just recorded impressive growth with a best ever fifth enrolment of 25 new learners from around the world including the USA, UK, Middle East and China. They join existing learners from companies including Digital Realty, Cyxtera, Microsoft, HPE, GlaxoSmithKline, IBM, Equinix, Oracle and International Security Exchange.

The Masters Degree is a three-year, asynchronous distance learning programme and takes data centre professionals on an educational journey to develop strong leadership and management skills. Topics have been selected based on feedback from the sector itself and data centre professionals, some of whom are delivering the program alongside other specialist tutors.

Dr Terri Simpkin, higher and further education principal at CNet comments: “The Masters Degree programme takes into consideration the dynamic nature of the sector and melds the academic rigor of Anglia Ruskin University with the sector insight of CNet.

“It aims to build a bridge between technical acumen and the emerging demands of business leadership and management. It represents a unique blend of critical academic learning and applied professional development and is designed for professionals wishing to add contemporary leadership capabilities to their portfolio of capability.”

Andrew Stevens, CEO at CNet adds: “This truly is a world first and I am absolutely thrilled by the popularity of the degree programme. The learning method is perfect to suit the lifestyles of busy data centre professionals, and the feedback we have received from the learners has been very positive.”

“The graduation ceremony is going to be a very special event for both the degree learners and CNet. Held in the famous and historic university city of Cambridge, UK, it will not only provide a fantastic reward for the learners, proving that the three years of committed learning has all been worth it, but will also confirm CNet as leading innovators in education for the digital infrastructure industry.”
