What we do
Our mission and our passion are one and the same. For almost 50 years, we've helped millions of people become citizens of the world by breaking down barriers of language, culture and geography. Through cultural exchanges, educational travel, language training and degree programs we are the World Leader in International Education.
The global classroom
EF was founded on a simple idea: to learn you need to experience. We make it possible for American teachers to lead students to over 100 countries. We prepare foreign students to attend English-speaking International Baccalaureate programs. And we run Hult, a top-ranked international MBA program. Everything we do opens more doors to the global classroom.
Over the last 45 years we’ve built a global network of 25,000 teachers, 9000 staff and 400 schools and offices in more than 50 countries. Across our 16 divisions we offer educational travel, cultural exchanges, language training and academic degrees. Education First is more than our company name—it’s what we do every day.
The EF team
Individually, we’re passionate about visiting foreign places. As a team, we get excited to see others discovering the world around them. Candidates don’t come to us looking for a job, they come here because they’re already on board with our mission. If this sounds like something you’re interested in, we’d love to get to know you.
Partnerships that grow
We’re the official supplier of language training to the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, and that builds on the work we did for the Beijing 2008 Olympics and Seoul 1998 Olympics. We’re excited for these continued opportunities to break down language, cultural and geographical barriers on a global scale.
