Indians need to improve both soft and technical skills, shows data
Online learning platform Coursera’s Global Skill Report 2021 has found that while Indian learners are relatively more adept at digital skills like cloud computing and machine learning, there are significant skill challenges across key domains. India’s overall rank in the report was 67 globally, with 38% proficiency.
It ranked 55 in business and 66 in technology and data science. “The pace of skills transformation is slower than the pace of digital transformation in India,” says Raghav Gupta, Coursera’s managing director, India and APAC. Learners must invest in both soft and technical skills to prepare for jobs of the future.”
