    In 1998, global enrollment at the Cisco Networking Academy was 27,129. In 2017 it topped 1.3 million. That soaring growth reflects a changing economy but also Cisco’s deep commitment to workforce development. Students learn skills ranging from cybersecurity to networking and IT; 70% of those who earn Academy certifications go on to get new jobs, better pay, or new responsibilities.
