Lazada teams up with higher education institutes to offer SMEs e-commerce skills

Lazada has announced it is working with higher education institutes and data analytics experts to jointly develop online and offline training courses that will help Southeast Asia’s entrepreneurs and SMEs capitalise on the e-commerce boom.

In a statement issued today (29 March), Lazada said that it has formalised the partnership with Nanyang Polytechnic’s Singapore Institute of Retail Studies (SIRS), Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF), Singapore-based data analytics firm Sparkline, and Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS), through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).

More than 1,000 people, ranging from existing and new sellers on Lazada, SME owners, professionals, managers and operational staff, are expected to complete courses between April to December 2018. Topics covered include supply chain and inventory management, introduction to data analytics and how business owners can sell efficiently and effectively in Southeast Asia’s eCommerce market.

“Thanks to the expertise of the partners that we have brought together today, we are able to enrich the offerings on Lazada University to help our 155,000 sellers across the region become more knowledgeable in eCommerce operations and opportunities both in Singapore and Southeast Asia. Lazada sees it as our mission to help the sellers on our platform grow and are happy to work with like-minded organisations,” said Alexis Lanternier, Chief Executive Officer, Lazada Singapore.
