Event Details

The pandemic has greatly accelerated digital initiatives, but they often come costly and resource-intensive to launch. Highered, the careers platform for EFMD, is partnering with Coursera to launch a global skills initiative for your business school students. The initiative aims to bridge the digital skills gap.

The partnership will provide access to more than 5,000 courses and 1,900 Guided Projects on Coursera to students from 700 business schools in 92 countries (EFMD’s global network).

Coursera will offer a broad catalogue of content and credentials, including courses, Certificate Programs, and Guided Projects. Highered will provide students and alumni with access to custom-made learning plans tailored to the skills that specific employers are looking for. The initiative will contain courses from employers such as Google, Facebook, BCG, IBM, and Microsoft.

An example of a learning plan could be “GetHighered in investment banking for MBAs” or “Digital marketing readiness for Facebook”. New courses will be added continuously and learning plans will be developed and updated in collaboration with companies and business schools.

We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to a webinar that we will hold jointly with Coursera to introduce the partnership to Career Services professionals from the EFMD network.
