OpenClassrooms is an online platform offering top-quality, education-to-employment programs and career coaching services for students worldwide. A next-generation school, OpenClassrooms is 100% online with the most in-demand skills for the jobs of tomorrow available today. Different from all other online learning platforms, their Career Paths include weekly, one-on-one mentorship sessions with a dedicated professional in each field, supporting students through their studies. Additionally, they base their curriculum specifically around the competencies students need to thrive on the job. Their programs are project-driven, there are no tests or studying for exams, and all courses are self-paced. Students can earn bachelor’s and master’s-level diplomas in web development, data, IT, project management, and more. OpenClassrooms also teaches crucial soft skills such as working effectively in teams, public speaking, and learning how to learn efficiently. At the end of a diploma program, they help students find a job in their target fields through career coaching, and are so confident in their dual model that they offer a worldwide job guarantee whereby tuition fees are refunded if a student does not find a job within 6 months of graduation.
