Coursera appoints Raghav Gupta as India director

Coursera has appointed Raghav Gupta as country director for India. Kabir Chadha who previously headed Coursera’s efforts in India has moved to company headquarters in Mountain View. Gupta will be responsible for expanding the company’s workforce development initiatives and partnerships.

Gupta joined Coursera from inter-city carpooling service BlaBlaCar where he was the India Country Manager. Previously, he worked as a consultant at  Booz & Co. and Technopak Advisors.

India is the second largest market for Coursera outside the Unites States with more than 2 million registered users. Since launching in 2012, the company says it has 25 million registered users and offers over 2,000 courses, 180 specializations and four degrees available to enroll in at any time.

In August 2015, it entered into a strategic partnership with media company Times Internet in India, for operating, strategic and marketing support. Times Internet also participated in Coursera’s Series C funding of $49.5 million.

In 2016, the company has done a number of partnerships: in September it launched its B2B offering Coursera for Business, to provide skill development courses and training for employees in different organisations, with Axis Bank as its first customer from India. It also partnered with Manipal Global Education Services to offer its courses to Manipal’s student network of over 1.5 million students (including the alumni). Coursera also has a similar partnership with the Indian School of Business.
