    Founded in 2008 by a team of education and technology veterans, 2U enables leading colleges and universities to deliver their high quality education to qualified students anywhere. Our cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform provides schools with the comprehensive operating infrastructure they need to attract, enroll, educate, support, and graduate their students. Our mission is to enable the education our clients provide to reach its highest potential so students can reach theirs.

    2U employees are committed to bringing creativity, ingenuity, hard work and passion in their approach to delivering high-quality, far-reaching education online. Our TechDev team focuses on providing cutting-edge learning software for our students, faculty and university partners. Other great things about 2U: we just moved into brand new offices in DUMBO at 55 Prospect Street, we are changing the landscape of higher ed, and we don’t hire assholes.
