A Skills-Based University

Built for the Digital Economy

We’ve built European Leadership University to bridge the skills gap that businesses currently face. We do this by engaging with employers and developing talent to give them the skills they need now. Our aim is simple in design but ambitious in scope – to invest in talent for the fourth industrial revolution.

The genesis of ELU was a small training firm in Istanbul with a big heart and vision of the future of education. ELU is now a world leader in technology-driven talent development. ELU matches the growing and unsatisfied demand from the corporate world for relevant skills with the supply of degree-level young talent from countries where students could not normally afford to take the risk of getting a degree without the guarantee of a job. By leveraging the latest technology to deliver education and training in a low cost flexible way, it can serve a global market and help solve some of the world’s economic migration problems. ELU is an exciting investment opportunity because the global growth potential is huge and barriers to entry are high. I am very proud to have been involved from the start of this journey.
