About us

HIGHERED’s mission is to “Help students get awesome jobs, globally”. Highered has built the only truly global platform to recruit top talents from graduate schools all over the world through ONE channel. Our platform is already plugged in to more than 200 absolute top schools, giving direct access to top talent.

In co-operation with the most acknowledged business school accrediting body in the world, EFMD, we have been given access to more than 500 top schools with more than 3 million enrolled students. The EFMD school members represent the global top 5% educational institutions.

– Due to our EFMD partnership, and thereby our access to the unique school network, we are disrupting how corporations around the world can recruit and build their employer brand towards students at the leading academic institutions worldwide. Until now corporations have been forced to go school by school with no possibility to reach schools in an effective way. Until now students have had limited access to international placement opportunities. Until now schools have had a tremendous challenge helping their increasing share of international students find international placements opportunities. This again effects the school rankings and future student recruitment. Since launch in February 2017 we now have thousands of active student users (growing with 1.000 – 2.000 per week), and global cooperation agreements with companies like PepsiCo, Statoil, Accenture and Yara – to mention a few.

– Previously, access to this arena primarily was local, fragmented and inefficient. By structuring this in a more effective manor we are creating value for companies, schools, and first and foremost students!
