Our Story

Highered EFMD Shared Career Services

We are endorsed by educators and have direct access to more than 500 business schools and universities all over the world.

We are global in our footprint and mindset, with partners in 91 countries. And we walk the talk: our headquarters are staffed by a truly global team of colleagues from places as diverse as Norway, Canada, Italy, Poland, USA, China and the Philippines.

When we first presented our solution to 150 Deans at the EFMD 2016 conference we were blown away by the reaction we got. Someone shouted from the audience ‘we love you’ and we knew then we were set to have lasting impact. 

For the last 7 years, more than 1000 careers professionals at business schools have fed into Highered, through EFMDs careers conferences. This is a solution designed with the community, for the community, with a vision to build a world where every student and alumn can fulfill their dreams.
