Coursera, the leading player in the online education space, has partnered with Bank of Singapore for equipping 2,000 employees with specialized skills—500 of which are based in Dubai, Hong Kong and Manila. The Bank of Singapore would adopt Coursera’s enterprise platform, Coursera for Business—which enables enterprises to draw on high-quality online learning content to address their workforce upskilling needs.

Through this partnership, Bank of Singapore employees will have access to courses across Investment Management, Personal Development, Data Science, Cybersecurity and Leadership domains from Universities such as Johns Hopkins University, Columbia University, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Macquarie University, University of Washington, University of London, Duke University, etc.

“With the pace at which emerging technologies are impacting the nature of jobs, it is crucial for companies to upskill their workforce. The Banking sector is undergoing a massive digital transformation leading to a huge skills gap in its workforce. We’re excited to be partnering progressive companies like Bank of Singapore to help deliver on their learning objectives as they become future ready”,  Raghav Gupta, Director, India & APAC, Coursera.

Stephenie Teo, Head of Learning & Development, ‎Bank of Singapore said, “Employees are increasingly looking to take more ownership of their learning and development. This tie-up with Coursera would allow our employees, including those based in overseas markets, to choose courses which they find most relevant to them personally and professionally. This would make their learning journey more productive and meaningful. We are providing a viable alternative to the traditional format of training, where employees sit down for hours in a classroom to attend a course. Now, our employees can get real-time access to the training material any time they want.”

Coursera has helped millions of learners worldwide succeed and grow in their careers. Coursera for Business builds on Coursera’s technology platform and content foundation to deliver an enterprise learning solution that helps companies meet modern business challenges. Coursera for Business customers benefit from many powerful features, including curated, in-depth content from top universities, reputable and stackable certifications, an easy-to-use mobile platform, and centralized program management and progress tracking tools.
