Share Article

Financial Times | IE Business School has partnered with Volute, an education technology company, to develop a new process for measuring the impact of executive education programs.



“We’re excited to work with all our partners, each one offers a unique perspective as we bring this platform to market. Together we are embarking on a new era of Composable Education."

Volute works with leading universities and institutions to change the way business leaders are educated. These partnerships combine the insights of education thought leaders with a unique technology platform and business model.

Volute’s solution provides the ability for educators to combine various digital learning components into seamless, custom learning solutions delivered on demand. Volute calls this concept Composable Education.

With Volute, each university and institution has its own private marketplace of digital learning components and modular content. The components are educational content wrapped in Volute’s immersive Web App technology, called Volute Apps, which connect like building blocks to create personalized learning experiences. Composable Education is the ability to select and assemble these learning components in various combinations to satisfy specific learner needs.

Universities and institutions can choose Volute Apps from the Volute Marketplace and bundle them in any workflow. They can also use Volute’s toolkit to build their own Volute Apps for private use and to license them via the Volute Marketplace for new revenue streams. The result is a sharing economy of educational resources that benefits Volute’s growing list of partners, including over a dozen professional graduate schools and other organizations, including Financial Times | IE Business School Corporate Learning Alliance.

FT | IE Corporate Learning Alliance’s partnership with Volute will disseminate further its executive education digital content and help measure the impact of its outcomes-based corporate learning programs. The Alliance is a joint venture of the Financial Times and IE Business School, bringing insights and content from the FT together with IE’s learning innovation and faculty. It has established its Alliance with several of the world’s leading business schools in Europe, Asia, North and Latin America, together creating one of the largest pools of local and international learning expertise and content.

Claire Masson, Impact Evaluation Lead at FT | IE Corporate Learning Alliance, says: “Measuring the real impact of a corporate learning programme remains an aspiration for many learning and development professionals. Volute brings us the technology to deepen the statistical analysis of our custom executive education programmes.”

Volute’s founder and CEO, Michael Croft, said, “We’re excited to work with all our partners and each one offers a unique perspective as we bring this platform to market. Together we are embarking on a new era of Composable Education, which marks a major progression beyond the traditional learning systems used today.”

Volute’s Chief Marketing Officer, Jeffrey Lagomarsino, the former director of global leadership programs at Columbia Business School, has a successful track record of bringing innovative executive education technology to the market. He developed partnerships with Fortune 500 corporations and their senior executives to launch web-based tools for personalized learning. Lagomarsino is also a former client of Volute and, after seeing Volute’s new technology, joined forces to help introduce universities and corporations to the concept of Composable Education.
