Pedago is changing how talent is developed with Active Learning and Proactive Hiring.

At Pedago, the move is to step into “active learning” by moving away from the passive learning approaches that have dominated for the past century. They’re leveraging the best practices of experiential training through machine-based tutoring that provides individualized feedback and progression.

The way technology is revolutionizing teaching and learning, new ways to make education accessible for all are coming out that not only help in accessibility but also make education mobile as well as efficient.      

Pedago’s “Smartly” is one such way to get an elite MBA and the opportunity to put it to work in their Career Network. Aligned with MBA programs at the world's leading business schools, Smartly flips traditional lecture-based instruction with active, individualized lessons available on any device.
