Blume Global Inc., a provider of execution and visibility supply chain technology solutions, has launched a Learning and Development initiative to provide continuing education programs through Coursera Inc., an online learning platform, and Stanford Graduate School of Business.
Blume’s new collaboration with the Stanford University Graduate School of Business has led to a tailored management program that will help employees develop leadership skills, shaping the organization as it continues to grow. The virtual educational intensive also includes a five-day residential program on the Stanford GSB campus. Once the program is completed, employees will receive a certificate from Stanford GSB.
"Stanford Graduate School of Business Executive Education is excited to collaborate with Blume Global,” said Peter Reiss, professor of economics and MBA Class of 1963. “Our goal is to provide their executives with new tools and insights that they can use to meet Blume's business challenges, as well as further the professional development of their leaders."
With Coursera, Blume employees can annually utilize 80 hours of training during business hours. The unlimited platform access includes courses and guided projects on supply chain management, data science, software engineering, programming languages, cloud, IT, IT Ops, testing tools, Google Cloud Platform and web development. Additionally, the L&D team has provided curated courses for employees as suggestions to develop and nurture specific departmental skills.
“We’re excited to collaborate with Blume to deliver job-based skills development to its employees around the world,” said Leah Belsky, chief enterprise officer at Coursera. “This program will help learners develop the essential skills needed to unlock new opportunities and advance their careers in the digital economy.”
“Blume Global’s culture is one of innovation and continual learning, and collaborating with Coursera and Stanford GSB for our education initiatives made perfect sense,” said Blume Global CEO Pervinder Johar. “At Blume, we’re investing in our people so they can invest in themselves, attaining new skills and knowledge they can apply to their careers in supply chain technology.”
