OpenClassrooms, Europe's leading online education platform, is announcing the launch of a US advisory board to guide the company's US expansion efforts. This group of leading education, technology, and human capital experts will offer counsel and direction to the company as it continues to scale its popular alternative education model in the US.
OpenClassrooms offers a fully online model that pairs project-based coursework with one-on-one mentorship and career coaching for millions of students across 170 countries. The company is expanding into the US through recruitment and reskilling partnerships with firms such as Salesforce, Microsoft, and Google. OpenClassrooms is headquartered in Paris, France.
The OpenClassrooms US advisory board includes six experts representing a diverse intersection of the US education, technology, government, and nonprofit sectors. Their mission is to provide OpenClassrooms with essential guidance on market opportunities, product development, the US regulatory environment, and more.
The advisory board members include:
"We are thrilled to have the opportunity to tap into the expertise of such bright and accomplished minds," says Pierre Dubuc, Co-founder and CEO of OpenClassrooms. "The mission of our organization is to bring high quality and career focused education to students across the globe. The active engagement and assistance of this group of individuals will play a significant role in our ability to accomplish it."
"Through my work with New York's growing tech ecosystem, I have seen first-hand the critical need for job-ready candidates in emerging tech," says Tech:NYC Executive Director Julie Samuels. "I believe OpenClassrooms' approach is a key part to solving for our growing skills gap, and I look forward to doing all I can to help them meet this extraordinary need in the US."
