Leading destination for learning and teaching online, Udemy has announced Melbourne as its regional business hub in Australia, signaling further investment in growing its presence in the Asia Pacific region.

Udemy’s platform serves nearly one million learners in Australia with flexible and effective skill development education. In June 2022, Udemy Business, its corporate training solution, saw around 50% growth in learners across new and existing customers in Australia, New Zealand, and other APAC markets, when compared to a year earlier.

“Australia and New Zealand are key markets for us, and a central business hub in Melbourne will support the continued expansion of our business across the region,” Udemy vice president and managing director of Asia Pacific, Peter Kokkinos said.

“Now more than ever, reskilling and upskilling are imperative for companies to stay ahead of the ongoing changes and disruptions across industries, and we are here to help our customers meet these challenges.”

Udemy Business supports Australian enterprise customers with personalised and scalable employee skill development solutions. It currently serves Australian companies such as Australia Post and P&N Group. Other APAC customers include Bosch Global Software Technologies Company Limited, LG Uplus Corp, Hyundai Mobis and Mitsubishi Chemical.

“We offer a wide variety of high-quality courses on trending topics taught by real-world experts and empower our customers with distinctive learning experiences for their employees,” Udemy senior director and head of customer success for Asia Pacific, Marlon Herft said.
