A sneak peek at EDIT 2016
Comtrade’s 20th annual summer school, EDIT (Education for Innovative Thinkers), is scheduled to start this July in seven cities in Southeast Europe and Ireland.
This year’s program schedule will be as follows:

During the two weeks of classes led by Comtrade mentors, students will be challenged to demonstrate their strengths and apply what they’ve learned in their academic studies to real-world problems.
This year’s program will cover a number of trending topics in IT and, for the first time, also touch on several aspects of business. The overall EDIT theme will be focused on the cloud and digital technologies – two IT topics that are on every organization’s radar today. Different school locations will present different projects that cover everything from the Internet of Things, digital transformation and cloud technologies to big data analytics and business intelligence solutions.
As the pool of IT graduates keeps growing, it is more important than ever before for students to expand their skillset and gain valuable work experience while still in school. Comtrade’s EDIT is a perfect opportunity for IT students to get a sense of what lies ahead in their careers – working in close-knit teams, taking on a leadership role, tackling complex problems and delivering solutions under tight deadlines. In addition, students have a unique opportunity to learn about Comtrade’s mission, values and corporate culture and see what it is like to work in an international IT company.
Stay tuned. More about EDIT 2016 coming soon!
