Why the Middle East and North Africa?

One of the most diverse & undiscovered regions in the world

Large educated population

This region will soon have as many STEM graduates annually as Europe. It has the youngest population in the world and rates of tertiary education exceed those in the USA.

Remote or onsite

Some of our alumni prefer to relocate to Europe; others prefer to stay home and work remotely. Our partnerships team can support you with either option.

Diverse in many ways

Our talent pool is diverse in every sense: ethnicity, religion, language, life experience, and gender. In Palestine, more women study computer science than men.

Social impact

This region has the highest rate of youth unemployment in the globe. In Palestine 83% of women computer science graduates are unemployed. Join us to change that.
