Coursera Launches Corporate Training Platform

September 1, 2016

Massive open online course platform Coursera on Wednesday announced the launch of a workforce development platform, Coursera for Business. The platform will offer many of the same courses found on Coursera's learner-facing platform, but "curated" to a company's training needs, according to the website. Axis Bank, BNY Mellon and L’Oréal are some of Coursera's first corporate customers. Coursera last year suggested that corporate training represented a lucrative market for the company. Speaking to Inside Higher Ed in February 2015, CEO Rick Levin said the company was building a business model around course sequences, corporate partnerships and on-demand content.
