Manila, Philippines – Upskilling talent and keeping pace with technological developments are two key challenges that executives face today. This coupled with the massive shift towards remote working brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic has triggered a partnership between ECC International (www.eccinternational.com), one of the region’s leading process consulting company and Udemy (www.Udemy.com), the world’s largest online learning marketplace, to bring the most current and in-demand skills content on Udemy for Business (www.business.udemy.com) to the Philippines and help the country’s businesses remain competitive in the region.

This calls for agile, practical, and high-quality learning solutions that provide high ROI – there is no better answer to this than Udemy today. So this association to bring Udemy for Business is a logical move”, says Mahesh Krishnamurthy, Business Head of ECCI.
