Expedia Group Academy officially launched last week on an online learning platform. The program’s online learning modules, themed by month, are led by industry and subject matter experts as well as Expedia Group executives. Modules include webinars, online trainings, activity guides and downloadable resources.
July, the first month, focuses on professional development and includes three tracks: elevating personal brand, managing online reputation and interview preparation. In August industry experts will join Expedia Group Academy to share insights into the various sectors of the travel industry ranging from lodging, air and cruise. September’s focus is developing business skills in high-demand areas such as data and analytics, financial planning, and sales training. The final module, in October, will center on transformational and purpose-led leadership with trainings on effective coaching, inclusive leadership and managing stakeholders.
Expedia Group Academy exemplifies the community-mindedness of Expedia Group and demonstrates our commitment to the larger travel community and, frankly, it makes me proud to be a part of Expedia. We are all hopeful that this global challenge will be resolved soon, and in the meantime, we are doing what we can to help our fellow travel and tourism workers.
