MCAST and iGaming Academy launch first iGaming CourseDuring a recent speech, Minister for Competitiveness and Digital Economy, Hon. Dr. Emmanuel Mallia stated “Malta’s unemployment rate is historically at its lowest ever, and the demand for talent is higher than the supply. The Maltese government together with the respective bodies feel committed to drastically increase the level and frequency of human resources through a demand and supply model. This allows us to understand and align the human resource needs and requirements of the industry with skills sets, courses and training being provided by private & public educational institutions.

Jaime Debono, Managing Director of the iGaming Academy said “The iGaming industry continuously requires highly skilled ICT professionals to join its workforce, by merging an industry recognised iGaming course with the MCAST Batchelor of Science courses related to ICT, students will now be given more opportunities to explore the iGaming industry as a possible career path

Dr Silvio De Bono, President of the MCAST Board of Governors mentioned “We are also exploring ways to include other key studies related to the iGaming industry to the full-time and also the part-time courses in other institutes apart from ICT to prepare students for the various employment opportunities that the iGaming industry is creating, such as fraud and security, legislation, product knowledge, business analytics and marketing
