Bootstrapped and growing, GreatLearning claims to have seen a 100x growth in the number of registered learners in three years, and 20x revenue growth from the first to third year. The team claims to have turned profitable in the second year of operations and continues to do so; however, they refused to give specific numbers. The team has grown from five to 45 and now has offices in Bengaluru and Gurgaon.
At Great Learning, we believe that a technology enabled blended mode offering will result in superior learning outcomes. While we employ state of the art technology for content delivery, video production and student engagement, we are also focused on keeping interaction with faculty central to the learning process, said Arjun Nair, Director, Operations and Learning Experience at Great Learning.
There will always be exceptions where people can learn completely online, and it is possible where you have to learn superficially, to let’s say, pass a test. But when it comes to in-depth learning where you have to assimilate and apply concepts, you need external support. It’s when the courses are hard that people drop out, and it is in cases like this that learning support and mentorship really helps,” said Mohan Lakhamraju, chief executive officer, Great Learning, a hybrid education platform that offers MBA.
The ultimate test of any learning is the impact it creates for the learner. We at Great Learning are very proud to see that over 2/3rds of our learners have accomplished career transitions within 6 months of program completion, said Mr. Hari Krishnan Nair, Co-Founder, Great Learning.
