Rana Kapoor, MD&CEO, Yes Bank, says, “As one of the fastest growing Banks in India, we want to effectively scale the ‘Digital Quotient’ of all Yes Bankers which not only allows us to remain relevant in changing times, but also keep us ‘Future Ready’. With Coursera, we aim to provide Yes Bankers access to the best-in-class learning platform, equipping them with skills to succeed in tomorrow’s workplace and economy.”

Raghav Gupta, Director – India and APAC, Coursera, says, “Technological developments have taken the Indian banking sector by storm, and have certainly made banking easier for consumers. However, they have changed the nature of jobs and therefore the skill sets required by the banking workforce. With increased adoption of emerging technologies and automation in this sector, employees need to be equipped to do much more.”
