We are Hyrise Academy

Work has changed for ever.
It's time for education to do the same.
Everybody deserves a career they love.

Why we exist

There are thousands of amazing career opportunities out there. There are also thousands of people who would be great at these jobs, and would significantly improve their lives and that of their families.

Unfortunately, they don't have access to the education and professional opportunities necessary to make this happen.

This is why we started Hyrise Academy. We believe everybody can and should have a career they love. We are on a mission to make this happen by creating the educational model of the future.

Work has changed for ever. It's time for education to do the same. We believe in a model that gives people access to rewarding careers, and the skills to be successful at their jobs when they need it. A model that is accessible, personalized and designed for employability.

The future of education

We believe in a new education system that enables people to lead better careers and lives in the digital economy. It's based on 3 pillars.

Global icon

1. Make education accessible

Talent is everywhere, opportunity is not.
We envision a model that allows everyone the possibility to develop to their full potential and access global opportunities, regardless of their geography, background or socio-economic status.

2. Personalized to each individual

Different minds learn at different paces and in different ways.
Before the digital revolution it was hard to imagine a scalable way to provide individual learning paths for each student. This is not true anymore. Education should leverage technology to adapt to the needs of each individual.

3. Designed for employability

Education should deliver ROI
The basis to design any educational experience should be reverse engineered from the expected or desired outcome.  If, for example, the objective is to land a job, education should ensure it’s teaching the most relevant skills in the most effective way to achieve this.
