In 1998 we set out to break through the physical limits of education. Today, we are removing them completely. What’s the future of learning? With our tech-powered services, we are delivering education whenever, however, and wherever our students want to learn—tailored to their individual lives. It’s local, international, global, and always accessible.

Employees as a power.

By asking our people to think differently, make bold decisions, and drive change, we are able to respond and serve our students at speed. This collective power enables us to do what our competitors can’t do or are not willing to do.
