As we craft this new approach to tech in higher ed, I couldn't imagine a greater crew to have on the bridge,” said John Katzman, CEO of Noodle Partners.

Noodle Partners, a firm that is radically changing how colleges and universities bring their programming online to make it less expensive for all, especially students, announced four board members today.

The board members include:

  • Michael Horn, co-founder and Distinguished Fellow at the Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation, Director of Robin Hood Education + Technology Fund, and co-author of Blended and Disrupting Class
  • John Katzman, CEO of Noodle Partners, Founder of The Noodle Companies, The Princeton Review, and 2U
  • Greg O’Brien, Senior Vice-President of QuinStreet, and former CEO of The CollegeBound Network, LLC
  • David Tanzer, President and CFO of The Noodle Companies

Unlike other companies that expedite online initiatives for universities, Noodle Partners leverages the $10 billion invested in the edtech market over the past eight years, the skills acquired by the universities and the investments they have made in their technology and content. Noodle Partners’s innovative business model allows schools to launch high-quality, large-scale online programs, and to make on-campus programs more compelling and efficient, at very low cost.

“Helping traditional colleges move online has become more and more mainstream in higher education," Horn said. "I'm excited to see Noodle Partners come in as a disruptive player to create great online programming and reduce the overall cost by leveraging the best of education technology.”

Noodle Partners was founded by education entrepreneur John Katzman, who previously founded and ran two publicly traded education companies – The Princeton Review and 2U. "As we craft this new approach to tech in higher ed, I couldn't imagine a greater crew to have on the bridge,” said John Katzman. “Michael, is one of the most insightful and original minds in education; Greg is one of the most successful leaders in higher ed recruiting; and the rest of our team brings the deep expertise needed to rethink higher ed."
