Employer Testimonial

"I continue to be amazed by the caliber of graduates the Institute turns out year after year. In particular, I'm impressed with the localization management skills that MIIS infuses in its students. Medialocate recruits many of its best project and account managers from the Institute because they come with language as well as business smarts specifically tailored to the needs of fast-paced, quality-driven technology firms in the Silicon Valley."

Stephan Lins, CEO, Medialocate
