For-credit online courses making education more accessible and cheaper
We are a group of people who have set out to create the world’s best for-credit university-level online courses, and offer them at a fraction of the cost of what’s currently available. Many of us have or had student debt ourselves, or wish we had better educational access growing up. Our founder & CEO, Aaron Rasmussen (co-founder of MasterClass), transferred community college courses into Boston University to make his degrees more affordable—and his experiences during that time planted the seeds for what would eventually become Outlier. We are a passionate multidisciplinary team drawing from the worlds of education, technology, film, gaming, VR, and beyond. We tap respected subject matter experts to guide our course creation every step of the way.
