The Micro Focus Academic Program is a toolkit for universities. It is both a course in itself and the means to implement it. We'll make sure you have everything you need to teach an industry-relevant IT course that will enable your students with a highly-employable skill that addresses the IT and COBOL skills challenge faced by many business organizations.

COBOL has been the language of successful business applications for over 30 years and with 5 billion lines of new COBOL code being developed every year, this skill is both enjoyable and employable for the developer that pursues it.

Micro Focus believes in COBOL and we continue to develop and invest in this program to reaffirm our commitment to the universities and academic institutions that enable, educate and equip the IT business leaders of tomorrow.
