Coursera announced yesterday it teamed up with Salesforce, IBM, and SV Academy to launch two entry-level Professional Certificates on sales development and data analytics.
These programs, priced at $49/month, do not require any specific education or work experience from learners.
- Sales Development Representative (SDR) Professional Certificate from Salesforce and SV Academy. This five-course program covers SDR basics, including how to prepare a professional portfolio and develop a personal brand, the Conversational Selling methodology, and tech tools. It integrates content from Trailhead.com, Salesforce’s free online learning platform, to prepare learners for a career in sales development.
- Data Analyst Professional Certificate from IBM. This eight-course, nine months program includes a mix of theoretical coursework and hands-on labs in order to provide learners with skills on data-driven decisions.
“Offering the new IBM Data Analyst Professional Certificate on Coursera will help learners develop skills and gain practical experience for working with data and ultimately, preparing for their next career steps,” said Leon Katsnelson, Director and CTO of IBM Developer Skills Network.
