“The vast majority of universities do not have Salesforce education as a course offering,” said Jeff Powrie, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and U.S. Salesforce talent lead. “According to a recent IDC report from October 2019, Salesforce will drive the creation of 4.2 million new jobs and more than $1.2 trillion in business revenues worldwide by 2025. This is a great opportunity for students to learn Salesforce basics and gain experience that could open doors in the future.”
Through live webinars and newsletters facilitated by professionals from Deloitte and Salesforce, participants will learn the basics of Salesforce, see what consulting at Deloitte is like and gain experience working with the fastest growing CRM tool. The topics include an overview of the Salesforce ecosystem; a day in the life of a Deloitte consultant engaged on a Salesforce assignment; and a 360-degree view of a Salesforce project. The program is open to all university students based in the U.S. regardless of school, year or major.
Deloitte Digital’s Salesforce Academy has set the goal to provide on-campus Salesforce and consulting training to over 1,000 college students by the end of 2021. The program has already trained hundreds of college students through bootcamps since its founding in 2018.
