Pearson is an international media company with world-leading businesses in education, business information and consumer publishing. We help children and adults to learn, business people to make good decisions, and readers to wind down or wise up with a good book. Our businesses fuel a growing demand for knowledge and share a common purpose: to help our customer live and learn.
In recent years, we have transformed what we do, focusing on 'education in the broadest sense of the word', and how we do it, embracing technology to change the way that people learn.
We lead our markets in quality, innovation and in profitability, and bring together some of the most valuable brands in publishing: the Financial Times, Penguin, Dorling Kindersley, Scott Foresman, Prentice Hall, Addison-Wesley and Longman. From our roots as the world's largest book publisher, we've grown to provide a range of related services: testing and learning software for students of all ages; data for financial institutions; public information systems for government departments.
With 34,000 employees based in more than 60 countries, we are a family of businesses that draws on common assets, processes and shares a common purpose: to help our customers live and learn.
