"Our collaboration with Udemy is the first of its kind for a bank and we are thrilled to be partnering with the leading global online learning marketplace," stated Luvleen Sidhu, President, Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer at BankMobile. "We aren't just in the business of providing financial services to our customers. We strive to help them succeed beyond their financial life."
Through Udemy, BankMobile customers will be able to learn new skills or sharpen existing ones at a discounted price. With over 45,000 courses taught by expert instructors, Udemy offers students access to the most current learning content on virtually any subject from web development to personal development, photography, and more.
"At Udemy, we believe that learning is the bridge between who you are today and who you want to become," said Rich Qiu, VP of Business Development at Udemy. "We are excited to partner with BankMobile and help their customers gain the skills they need to improve their lives through greater access to flexible, online learning opportunities."
BankMobile's "Best You Yet" experience is committed to empowering consumers with the tools and resources to be the best they can possibly be. Participants are asked to start their journey by taking the "Best You Yet" pledge, which leads them to receive a membership card and starter kit. The experience incorporates three main pillars of empowerment, including mind, money and motivation, which serve to guide the various monthly personal development challenges, contest/giveaway opportunities with prizes from our partners, like Udemy, and exclusive financial and lifestyle content.
"From motivating our customers to maximize their full potential in campaigns like the 'Best You Yet' to providing them with cost-efficient access to top companies like Udemy, we are committed to helping our customers build skills, get jobs, make money and save money," added Sidhu.
