Tackling the big issues

Too many students around the world don't have access to the education they deserve. Many pay a high price and leave university unprepared for the global workplace.

Some 91% of students say they want to go to university to get a job.
Just 33% of faculty members say preparing students for work is a priority.

Opportunity regardless of physical location

Traditional higher education is exclusive, serving the top one to two percent of the world’s population. Why should a person’s physical location shut the door to economic opportunity? New possibilities have opened doors to the world, from growth in gig economies, virtual workforces and liquid borders, to increased mobile usage and internet connectivity.

We’re helping people everywhere to reskill and prepare for brighter futures. By enabling learners to succeed in a global workplace regardless of their physical location, we plan to transform millions who live in emerging economies. Empowered by a Nexford education, a talented marketing analyst in Indonesia can prepare to work for a bluechip company in Texas or Dubai – remotely. Anything is possible.

Born different. Our story

Born from this problem is Nexford. We’re a tech-powered solution. Learners – and their future success – are our core.

Affordable, credible, flexible. Aligned to global workplace needs. We offer a powerful way of learning through technology to enable greater economic mobility.

We’ve thrown out what doesn’t work. We’re giving learners everywhere new opportunities to move forward.
