Back to School with The Mobile Academy starting 30th September

The Mobile Academy, no-nonsense, practical learning from industry experts, run by MoMoLo and UCL. From developers to marketers, corporates to start-ups, The Academy brings together people with different backgrounds and levels of experience who learn from each other as well as from the experts. Read about what happened on our first four courses here.

We are running a special discount with the code MoMoLo which takes the start-up price down to £450, SMEs at £675 & Large companies at £1,350 all + VAT and booking fees. Benchmarked at over £3,000, there is nowhere else you can get this breadth of topics and quality of delivery. Perfect for those that just want to know more about mobile and/or are working on new products. Register here and get gist from our blog: http://themobileacademy.org.uk/blog/

“...The combination of excellent mobile design and technical teaching overlaid with business knowledge means that the take out from this programme is far beyond just being about mobile - it's about starting new businesses and business lines. This, along with the exposure to industry experts and other participants is invaluable for us at IBM as it broadens our outlook and introduces new ways of working. With this well rounded approach, we have found that our participants return thinking more “outside of the IBM box” and that their client interactions are deeper and broader…” Steve Devo, IBM
