Why choose Agorize as an education partner?

It can be a challenge to find real-life case studies that fit into your academic course, keep students engaged throughout the semester, and help them develop transferable and marketable skills. Agorize’s academic integrations answer those needs.

How to work with Agorize

Agorize works with schools through academic integrations. With an academic integration, you’ll be able to present students with case studies based on current industry challenges that they can work on. It can be fully integrated into their curriculum.

Going beyond Academic Integrations

Academic Integrations are an easy and effective way to give students practical experience within the scope of your course. However, some schools want more. This is where our Academic Innovation Platform offer comes in.
