The largest education company in the world
Pearson has a simple mission: to help people make more of their lives through learning. It is the world’s largest education company, with over 35,000 employees in more than 70 countries helping people of all ages to make measurable progress in their lives.
Pearson provides a range of education products and services to institutions, governments and direct to individual learners that help people everywhere aim higher and fulfil their true potential.
This commitment to learners requires a holistic approach to education. It begins by using research to understand what sort of learning works best, it continues by bringing together people and organizations to develop ideas, and it comes back around by measuring product outcomes.
Pearson acquired Wall Street English China in 2010, and the rest of the Wall Street English network in 2011. It operates corporate-owned learning centers in China and Italy.
