2U – Why Work For Us?

undefined

2U Inc. partners with leading colleges and universities to deliver the world’s best online degree programs so students every- where can reach their full potential. Our cloud-based software-as-a-service platform provides schools with the comprehensive operating infrastructure they need to attract, enroll, educate, support and graduate students globally.

Our Approach 
At 2U, one idea guides everything we do: No Back Row. Blending live online classes, dynamic course content and real-world experiences, our approach gives students the opportunity to realize their full potential. We work with our university partners to ensure every student can experience the best possible education for the brightest possible future.

  • Immersive Course Content: The programs we support feature live, online classes that are grounded in group discussion and collaborative conversation. In order to facilitate robust class discussions, students engage in immersive course content between live classes. From documentary-style lessons to video case studies to interactive learning tools, course content is designed to raise questions, describe theories and inspire ideas for later discussion.
  • Live Classes: The programs we help develop are delivered online, but they are not like any other online learning experience. Class sessions are held on a live video platform and are led by university faculty members. All classes are intentionally kept small — an average of no more than 15 students — to facilitate close collaboration and engaging discussions.
  • Real-World Experiences: Practice-based learning is a cornerstone of every program. From nursing field experiences to LL.M. summer immersions, all programs have a real-life, in-person learning requirement. Why? We believe practical, real-world experiences enrich classroom learning, but also that some disciplines simply cannot be taught without in-person, hands-on experiences.
  • Social Engagement: By design, programs foster strong social engagement between students and faculty. Our unique online campus and live classes bring learning and social engagement together on a web-based platform and in-person experiences offer students the opportunity to meet, network and learn together.
  • Dedicated Support Services: High-quality student and faculty support is a hallmark of our service offering. We strive to make the transition from a traditional, on-campus setting to an online learning setting as seamless as possible — for both students and faculty. Our faculty support begins the moment we begin to work with a university, working closely with teaching professors. Support for students begins when they inquire about a program and continues throughout their program.


2U partners with some of the country's leading colleges and universities to offer online master's degree programs to students around the world. Each accredited online degree program features live face-to-face classes, real-world learning experiences and a rigorous curriculum designed and delivered by university faculty. In 2014, 2U launched its first undergraduate and doctoral programs.

    I have been working at 2U

    Pros

    The workforce is young. I work with a team thats members are mostly in their twenties and young thirties, so there is a very collegiate atmosphere. The company is new and recently had its IPO, so promotions are rapid. Very easy place to work. Happy hours on fridays and always pot lucks and food.

    Cons

    You almost have to start as a salesperson, or "admission counselor." Not until you have gone through the ropes can you move up. This involves cold calling.
