Coursera, the largest online education platform,  announced the launch of a series of five courses called a Specialization on ‘Data Analysis and Presentation Skills’ under a collaboration with PwC.

Under this partnership, PwC will offer a series of widely available courses for anyone who could benefit from learning more about business analytics. This collaboration will also allow PwC’s people to improve their internal learning and development. PwC is amongst one of the first professional services networks to offer courses to their 208,000 employees strong workforce and to the general public on the Coursera platform.

The Specialization includes five courses, viz., Data-driven Decision Making, Problem Solving with Excel, Data Visualization with Advanced Excel and Effective Business Presentations with PowerPoint. In order to earn a Specialization Certificate, learners are required to complete a final Capstone Project that involves analyzing a mock client problem and a data set to gain business insights, research the client’s domain area, and create recommendations and bring it all together in a recorded video presentation.

Speaking on the launch, Rick Levin, Coursera ’s founder and CEO said, “Coursera is devoted to helping individuals advance their careers with access to the best education institutions, and we’re excited to expand this work by providing courses from leading global employers like PwC. PwC has a unique understanding of exactly what employers are seeking in roles that require basic data analysis skills along with skills for how to communicate that data. We are delighted that PwC will now be able to help educate high potential people all around the world in these key skills through our platform.”
