Mantissa College Partners with Coursera to Impart 21st Century Job-Based Learning

It is a Catch-22 situation.

Without a job, there is no way one can gain experience, yet without experience, it is almost impossible to get a job.

This is the predicament that Universities graduates are in now.

Higher education worldwide is at a historic crossroads. With more than 300 million people entering the workforce in the next 10 years, students urgently need to augment their capacity to meet the growing demand for employees armed with the digital skills needed to drive businesses in the age of AI and automation.

That’s why Mantissa College is one of the few institutions in Malaysia to partner with Coursera, a leading global online learning platform, to offer full-scale blended learning and improve student employability. Through Coursera for Campus, students and faculty will gain free access to more than 4,600 job-relevant courses across digital marketing, project management, cloud computing, data science, blockchain, computer science, and AI.

This joint endeavour also focuses on Business Courses, Technology Courses, and Data Science Courses and integrates Coursera content from the world’s leading universities into the core curricula of the Certificate, Diploma, Degree and Masters programmes.

So here are 4 reasons why this partnership makes you an attractive employee:

  • Micro-credentials from the world’s best universities: Imagine your CV is equipped with certificates from top-notch universities and companies like the National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University of Singapore, Imperial College London, The University of London, Yale University, John Hopkins University, Duke University, Google, IBM, Meta and amongst others. Wouldn’t that make you stand out from the rest?
  • Learn in-demand digital skills: With rapid digital transformation affecting the way businesses operate, multidisciplinary skills in data science, project management, and digital marketing (amongst others) are vital for success in the workplace.
  • Relevant Professional Development: Relevant professional development: Gain skills and experiences that are highly sought after in the global marketplace, thus levelling the playing field during job interviews. This is a great way to showcase unique skills that set you apart from other qualified candidates, which is becoming increasingly important as more and more companies look for applicants with a diverse mix of skills and experiences.
  • Showcase your character: Speaking confidently about a skillset that you’ve developed can help guide interviewers and employers in the right direction. Micro-credentials from world-class institutions provide a clear-cut example of what you know and what you can get done, above and beyond your course.
