We are excited to partner with McLaren Racing to develop their team, from those in the driver’s seats and pit lanes to those running the business in their corporate offices. Udemy’s fresh and relevant course content will help McLaren maintain a high-performing team, staying ahead of fast-moving and ever-evolving trends in technology and business. We’re equally thrilled to support all four physical race series, demonstrating our commitment to the McLaren team’s learning journey.
