Elaborating about the partnership, Raghav Gupta, Director – India and APAC, Coursera, said, “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.”
