The company in its Global Skill Index (GSI) found that 90 per cent of developing economies are falling behind or are at risk of falling behind in critical skills.
GSI measured skill levels across business, technology and data science across 60 countries based on various parameters and ranked them in four categories -- cutting edge for those scoring 76 percentile or above (rank 1-15), competitive between 51-75 percentile (rank 16-30), emerging 26-50 percentile (31-45) and lagging category for percentile below 25 (rank 46-60).
"Globally, India ranks 50 in business, 44 in technology, and 51 in data science, which signal a great opportunity for more focused upskilling efforts on key competencies," the report said.
Coursera said it has 38 million registered learners across the globe and the GSI reflects the average skill proficiency of learners in each entity on its platform.
