Corporate Functions

Turning business support
into student value.
Global delivery of quality education at speed and at scale.
Corporate Functions Team
Within our corporate engine room you will find a multidisciplinary bunch of talented people all working together to deliver the best possible learning experience for our students. We scale up our impact by constantly measuring and improving our efficacy and performance inside and across all functions.
Our student satisfaction rate is running at 97%, so we must be doing
something right. And yes, we are working on the other 3%.

Procurement

For us, its all about having the right strategy for buying the highest quality products and services at the lowest prices. We seek innovative suppliers who will give us a competitive advantage, help position us effectively, and accelerate our growth.

Finance & Controlling

We’re the team that finds the investors, raises the capital, and mitigates the financial risks of our explosive growth. We manage invested capital, the cost of it, and the return on it. This enables us to offer a stellar ROI to all our students

Accounting

Yes, we are the bean counters, and we love it—we know everything about every cent. We ensure our business is sustainable over time through cost efficiency management to increase profits and shareholder value.

HR

We are responsible for everything you are reading about right now! We are the team that helps pick the teams. We help every team member to grow and enjoy themselves through the empowering nature of our culture.
We keep the company and our teams on the right side of legislative and regulatory change. We are the legal guardians of our business model, operations, and education standards & quality. Basically, we keep everyone and everything out of trouble.
Currently no open jobs.

Real Estate

We provide the beautiful and well resourced environments for our students and employees to be productive, comfortable and feel and safe in. We align ourselves with all other functions to promote their objectives.
