Mereka Academy’s Digital Entrepreneur Programme

Mereka Academy would like to invite all OUM graduates to join their FREE Digital Entrepreneur Programme, a fully sponsored programme by the Standard Chartered Foundation designed to help digitally upskill yourself!

The Mereka Academy Digital Entrepreneur programme is a 1-year programme that offers the necessary skills to kickstart your career, befitting freelancers or fresh graduates aged 21 to 35 years old who are unemployed or underemployed.

The program was launched during the Covid-19 pandemic to equip Malaysia’s talent pool with the techniques needed to create resilient communities that could face the increase in demands of a digital job market. It involved innovative educational experiences that combined transformative 21st-century learning with career guidance over a span of 1 year. The programme was designed in such a way that it encompasses physical training, online modules, direct consultation services with our trainers and in house career coach as well as project placements as a stepping stone towards digital freelancing!

While it has been a fruitful journey with various partnerships built along the way, Mereka Academy is delighted to have established a collaboration with Open University Malaysia to offer OUM graduates with such an opportunity to future-proof their careers after graduating.

“It was great and I really hope this batch can pursue the dream that we want. I would recommend this program to people who really have a dream. No need to have a plan yet, because ‘if you have a dream you have a way’. And I think this is the best way to pursue that dream. Thank you very much.” Shared by Khadijah, an OUM graduate who took part in the Digital Entrepreneur Programme.

For OUM graduates interested to digitally upskill yourself, secure your spot and join our 2-day physical training this 15 & 16 October 2022. Register by 10th October 2022 at!
