About Us

What unites Keypathers around the globe? They’re all believers in the transformative power of education, and committed to helping our university partners create the best online education experiences and reach more students than ever before through unrivaled education services.

Continuing the Tradition

Our leadership team pioneered the first online program management partnerships and helped launch hundreds of today’s most successful online programs. They aren’t ones to rest on their laurels, though. They are driven to find what’s next and build the best team in education services.

“Be Bold and Do Meaningful Work.”

You could call it our mantra. We seek out unique challenges. We move at a fast pace by choice. We push ourselves to be lifelong learners and demand the best from one another. It’s The Keypath Way, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Building True Partnerships

The traits that bind us together internally are the same qualities we look for in our university partners. We prize open and honest feedback. We treat our partners’ brands with the utmost respect. And truth be told, big challenges motivate us.

But our partners can say it better than we can:

“The more we work together, the more we feel like we are all a part of the same team. Every day, I get a better understanding of what Cindy Wheatley meant when she said that Keypath would be a “force multiplier”. There truly is no “weak link” on your team and we are glad to adopt all of you as fellow Noles!”

A Message from our CEO

In 2015 we launched Keypath’s global OPM division with a single mission: To create global access to online education. We would do this by partnering with the world’s best universities to offer students around the world, regardless of physical location, access to top faculty, challenging curriculum and an exceptional student experience through leading technology. 

To deliver on this mission, the first thing we did was hire the best and brightest leaders in online learning. We opened offices in Melbourne, Coventry, Chicago, and Toronto, and have virtual employees all over the world to support our university partners.

While our journey is just beginning, our team has accomplished so much already. We work with more than 25 partners worldwide, supporting 97+ degree programs. Our university partners are recognized for their academic quality with most being regionally or nationally ranked. In addition, 8 are globally ranked - a distinction given to only 3% of universities in the world. 

How did we do it? 

#1 Our people and culture
Our employees care deeply about the students we serve and are passionate about enabling them to change their lives through higher education. This commitment shines through in every aspect of our company culture.

#2 Our university partners 
We are inspired by the talented higher education professionals with whom we work. Their vision, drive and trust push us to design an exceptional online student experience. Collectively, we will expand access to advanced education.  

#3 Academic quality
We don’t stop at building courses that are “as good” as campus-based programs. Instead, we strive to enhance them. Because we believe that the online experience can be even more engaging than the campus one. 

#4 Leading technology
While we believe our people and partners are our greatest assets, we recognize that technology enables online education delivery. Therefore, we leverage best-in-class technology to power our programs and services. We’re constantly investigating, testing and pushing the envelope.  

I could not be more proud of my global team, their dedication to students, and delivering on our mission of creating global access to high-quality online education. Here’s to the future!
