Emeritus Set to Raise the Bar with $650 Million Funding Round

 

MarketScale’s Kevin Hogan sits down with Charlie Schilling about an exciting piece of breaking news in the education industry.

It’s not every day at the annual ASU+GSV Summit that you get to break some news — but MarketScale’s Kevin Hogan got the chance to do just that at this year’s event.

Hogan was joined by Charlie Schilling, President, Enterprise Business – U.S., Canada and Europe for Emeritus, an online education platform “committed to teaching the skills of the future by making high-quality education accessible and affordable to individuals, companies, and governments around the world.”

Schilling announced what the company is calling its “Series E” round of funding, which will see more than $600 million pour into the organization as it attempts to continue scaling its offering and meeting the changing educational landscape head on.

The funding round will enable the company to launch new business, enable further growth in its focus on workforce development, and much more, further cementing Emeritus as a stalwart of online education for professionals and beyond.
