Educators and institutions will receive a custom link to share with students. Upon getting certified, students can upload their certifications to a resume or website such as LinkedIn.

Guest presentations

Guest presentations

Amazon will collaborate with educators to identify 1-2 sessions where Amazon can deliver a presentation to the classroom. Topics will be relevant to existing coursework and align with the curriculum schedule. Example presentations include Amazon Ads 101, sponsored ads, or analytics and storytelling.

Co-teaching course

Amazon will collaborate with educators to identify several touchpoints (3+) where Amazon will co-teach with faculty on topics including sponsored ads, display ads, advertising audiences, and analytical recommendations. Coursework may be altered across the semester to fit in Amazon Ads training along with existing curriculum. Amazon may also integrate practical training and evaluations typically reserved for internships into undergraduate curriculum, providing students with hands-on-experience of roles in advertising and digital commerce.

Independent study or accredited class

Independent study or accredited class

Amazon will collaborate with educators to promote and develop a semester-long course taught by Amazon employees. In some cases, faculty will lead and teach topics after receiving professional training from Amazon employees. Independent study courses are a non-credit course, whereas accredited classes provide students university credit upon passing the course. We may integrate a case study, pitch presentation, required certifications, and more.
