According to reports, Qlik Continuous Classroom includes hands-on exercises, quick references guides, assessments, the ability to chat with live instructors and earn qualifications in the form of certificates and digital badges. To date, within the APAC region, 90% of all the Qlik Sense qualifications and 98% of all Data Analytics Certifications have been earned by Indian students and professors.
Pankaj Muthe, Program Manager, Academic Program, APAC, Qlik said, “COVID-19 has created massive transitions in the current work ecosystem, pushing organizations to reshape their existing business models. To excel in this new data-driven world order, data literacy and analytics have emerged as sought-after skills. The Qlik Academic Program caters precisely to this growing need for data expertise by equipping new-age learners with the right set of data skills required in tomorrow’s workplace. The program equally focuses on empowering educators who can help the next generation of data experts excel in this space.”
The Qlik Academic Program is open to any accredited university-level institution worldwide, including for-profit and non-profit colleges. Some of the prominent universities and institutions that have partnered with Qlik include IIM-Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Calcutta, IIT-Madras, Bombay, Roorkee and Kharagpur.
Earlier this month, Qlik also launched their Professor Ambassador Program. The initiative aims to shine a spotlight on professor members who have made Qlik a central part of their classroom experience for the next generation of analytics leaders.
Professors currently enrolled in the Qlik Academic Program can self-nominate to be a champion in preparing students for the data-driven workplace. Applications are open now to November 30, 2020. Selected ambassadors will be announced in early 2021.
