XP wants to train professionals
XP’s main objective is to train “the best professional talents in Brazil” for the market.
The company guarantees that an innovative methodology will be used, different from the market standard. All courses will be digital. Which, according to the company, is a way of “democratizing and inserting many more students into the educational process”.
The CEO of XP Educação, Paulo de Tarso, says that the institution wants to be a “career accelerator that delivers professionals who are already prepared for the challenges of the new digital economy”.
The “employer university” concept is the inspiration. Tarso mentions Google and Amazon, which have started to create their own graduate schools to solve the talent search problem.
