Central to the Global Skills Index are our Skills Graph and benchmarking methodologies. Together, they allow us to rigorously assess the skill proficiency of various countries, industries, and fields of study.
The Coursera Skills Graph connects skills to content, careers, and learners through a series of machine learning algorithms.
Through it, we can understand what skills are being taught and learned on the platform.
Using a patent-pending algorithm, we measure skill proficiency of each country, industry, and field of study for our rankings.
