How can instructors get involved with Udemy Business?
Opt-In: Make sure to opt into the Udemy Business Content Subscription marketing program on the Premium Instructor Application so that courses are eligible for inclusion.
More information is provided in the Promotions Policy, such as the requirement for Exclusivity for Udemy Business courses.
- As a means to highlight the uniquely valuable collection of courses on Udemy Business and to reach a wider business audience, any content that is available on Udemy Business must be hosted exclusively on Udemy while it’s in the Udemy Business content collection.
- This policy does not apply to any content on personal or professional websites or to any separate offerings like in-person trainings, books, etc.
- To opt out of individual courses to confirm they are ineligible for inclusion in the Udemy Business content collection, please fill out the eligibility form found in course settings.
How does Udemy Business decide which courses are selected for the program?
Udemy Business uses various criteria to determine which courses are added to the collection. First, instructors must opt into the Udemy Business program for their courses to be considered. Next, Udemy Business sees a lot of value in using the power of the marketplace to assist with course selection. One of the primary ways the Udemy Business team chooses courses is based on student feedback through things like reviews, refund rate, and reports of inappropriate content or technical issues. We may also consider things like how regularly the content is updated, how engaged learners are, and how responsive the instructor is.
The Udemy Business team also considers factors such as the subject matter demand by Udemy Business customers, and their overall content strategy.

To provide our global learners the courses that best meet their needs, we are currently only prioritizing content which is fully localized to their desired languages. Courses which have been translated via captions and/or dubbing would not eligible, as our policy requires:
- Consistency in the language used on all courses (audio, slides, resources, etc)
- Courses be taught by a fluent or native language speaking instructor
- Use of localized examples and practical exercises to provide Udemy Business learners culturally nuanced learning experience
Please note: We are unable to consider suggestions for Udemy Business course additions from instructors. If the course is marked eligible, rest assured it is already up for consideration.
Why was my course removed from Udemy Business?
We regularly review the Udemy Business collection to determine how courses are performing and what topics might be missing or saturated. We may remove content from the collection if a course falls below a 4.0 rating, if we determine that it’s not appropriate or serving the needs of our business audience, or if an instructor does not adhere to our Trust and Safety policies. If possible, our curation team will reach out with tips for quality improvement before we take action.
How does the revenue share work for the Udemy Business program? How is it reported on instructor revenue reports?
Learn how instructors earn revenue from Udemy Business.
Instructor revenue from the Udemy Business program is added to the revenue report differently than other purchases. Udemy Business revenue is added in the first week of the following month under the Udemy Business tab on the revenue report.
