Our Journey So Far
1807. That’s when we first started empowering people to succeed through learning. From aspiring teachers to CEOs, we’ve delivered career-connected education to generations of knowledge seekers across a range of industries for over 210 years.
In the 1800s, only professors had access to textbooks, so we democratized education by making them available for students too. But students needed more than just textbooks. So in the 1900s, we expanded access to knowledge again via research. As a result, we now help make 50 percent of the world’s research available to students, professors, and the general public.
But that was just the start. After acquiring the leading online program management (OPM) company Deltak, we brought colleges and universities into the digital age. With our help, they were no longer bound by a physical classroom. Instead, they could help students access affordable, high-quality education and make career dreams a reality.
We then expanded beyond traditional online program management. We began offering flexible partnership models, from complete strategic support to project-based, fee-for-service initiatives.
Learning House and Wiley Edge joined Wiley in 2018 and 2020, respectively, enhancing our portfolio. This meant we could offer:
- Continuous learning opportunities through short courses, boot camps, and skills training
- Professional development courses for K–12 teachers
- Talent development or corporate partners
As we’ve evolved, so has the way we communicate, learn, and work. We believe university degrees are just the beginning of a lifelong learning journey. Learners have needs throughout their careers far beyond graduation, so we’re always here to support them.
