Qlik Academic Program gains traction in ANZ

Data solutions provider Qlik has revealed that its academic program aimed at upskilling Australian and New Zealand students and teachers with data skills is seeing strong traction across both countries.

The Qlik Academic Program provides university educators, students and researchers with a range of software and learning resources tailored for improving data and analytics capabilities, including self-paced training modules, qualifications and certifications.

To date 40 Australian universities have signed up to the program, including University of Tasmania, Deakin University, Macquarie University and University of Queensland. The program is also expanding in New Zealand, with 11 tertiary education institutes including the University of Auckland engaging so far.

Qlik country manager for ANZ Mark Fazackerley said university educator and student registrations to the program across the two nations have grown more than 300% in the past five years.

“We have been long-time champions of upskilling our workforce through data literacy. We’re now at a critical time — the talent pool needs a boost and programs like the Qlik Academic Program are going to be critical to ensuring market-ready graduates in Australia and New Zealand,” he said.

“While our academic program benefits the students on an individual level, we hope to also change the broader narrative around data skills, and encourage upskilling across all backgrounds, fields and sectors. Our program data shows there is clearly an appetite to upskill not only in related professions, but in the arts and other fields of practice.”
