Udemy Announces Udemy Business Pro, the Next Iteration of End-to-End Technical Learning

Udemy, a leading destination for learning and teaching online, today announced that its corporate learning solution, Udemy Business, has expanded with a new offering: Udemy Business Pro. Udemy Business Pro will enable Udemy Business customers to evolve their technical skill development with in-depth learning experiences for their employees through new features like Udemy Paths, skills assessments, workspaces, and hands-on labs across critical skills in Information Technology, Software Development, and Data & Analytics.

"Seventy percent of employees say they haven't yet mastered the skills they need for the job they have today," according to Gartner agile learning research.* "Additionally, only one in five employees say they have the skills they need for both their current roles and future careers. As a result, upskilling and reskilling employees are priorities for many organizations, and learning has now become a business imperative."

In-Demand Skills Need On-Demand Training

Technology roles are undergoing constant innovation and are key in giving companies a competitive advantage. Designed alongside several Udemy instructors, Udemy Business Pro offers an end-to-end learning experience to keep up with the ever-changing industry demands through pre-curated Udemy Paths, skill assessments, hands-on labs, and workspaces for risk-free practice environments. Udemy Business Pro can help organizations to develop teams across in-demand technical roles and achieve stronger business outcomes through employee retention, team upskilling, and improved business agility.

The pandemic has accelerated already changing skill requirements across industries. Udemy's 2021 Workplace Learning Trends Report revealed that data science and data analysis have experienced a major increase in demand across industries. The report found that companies saw a 466 percent increase in data modeling training from 2019 to 2020, and a 1,488 percent increase in data warehouse training, demonstrating a major emphasis on data analytics skill building.

"Our customers are experiencing major workplace changes, especially when it comes to upskilling and role development," said Greg Brown, President of Udemy Business. "We believe the pandemic has served as a catalyst for the already rapid shift to online learning, and Udemy Business Pro is the next iteration in supporting that shift. Udemy Business Pro will bring personalized, practical, and hands-on learning to essential technical roles, which we believe will ultimately improve productivity and help organizations build technical teams ready for the challenges of tomorrow."

Better Business Outcomes

Udemy Business was built to accelerate and improve employee training and development, through curated Udemy courses alongside proprietary, personalized content from customers. With Udemy Business Pro, customers can access results-based, engaging learning, including content recommendations, skill assessments, hands-on labs and workspaces to provide learners with a safe environment to practice and hone their skills.

"With Udemy Business Pro, we've seen increased productivity through learning paths that guide our users to relevant courses for video instruction, labs for hands-on practice, and assessments to identify any remaining skill gaps," said Maziar Refahi, Data Science at Thermo Fisher. "I would highly recommend Udemy Business Pro for organizations that are solving for critical skills gaps in Data Science, Cloud Computing, DevOps, and IT to meet their upskilling and digitization outcomes."

"Corporate training and education is complex and requires many features and learning options," said Josh Bersin, Global Industry Analyst and CEO of Josh Bersin Company. "Udemy Business Pro is a great example of bringing together interactive labs, skills assessment, and other advanced features with the Udemy marketplace."

Udemy Business Pro offers personalized learning that guides, challenges, and reinforces learning outcomes. Initially focusing on IT, Software Development, and Data & Analytics, each guided experience offers a curated curriculum aligned to specific roles, and includes:
