Our job

Mandarine Academy, an EdTech company, supports the digital transformation of international companies by facilitating the use of new technologies by all employees. Thanks to an exclusive approach that combines a digital platform with personalized support and individual meetings, Mandarine Academy offers a new way of training that is more effective in terms of skills, capacity, time, and budget.

Our mission

You have been in the same position for several years, with your habits and uses on the tools you know inside out. Yet, one day, your manager tells you that tomorrow you will use a new tool. How to take the news with joy? Without support, this is rarely the case. This is why, at Mandarine Academy, we are committed to making digital tools accessible to everyone. We make sure that each employee will be able to effectively use the company's tools and its best practices. Thus, we support our clients and their users so that each company can achieve its goals.
