Why EDUCATIVA

EDUCATIVA is a group of social enterprises active in the Romanian educational system. The group brand was born in 2007, but the founding members of the team started working together in 2004.

We firmly believe that education is the most important investment that can be undertaken by an individual, a family or a country interested in a better future. That’s why we focus on two major impact areas:

  • Help young Romanians to identify and make the best use of a large array of personal and professional development opportunities;
  • Help the progress of the Romanian educational system by gradually shifting the focus of its attention and resources towards the interests of the students (rather than legacy structures).
  • In 2005 we organized RIUF (the first international university fair in Romania) due to the absence of a space where those interested in studying abroad could find answers to their individual questions. For the first time in Romania, RIUF was bringing a significant number of international higher education institutions and Romanian students face to face, the latter being able to benefit from the personal and direct contact with representatives of top universities abroad.

    Because RIUF was taking place, at the time, only once a year (from 2010 there are 2 editions, a spring and a fall one) and people interested in international studies needed information all the time, in 2007 we started EDMUNDO, the free counselling service for studying abroad. Over the years, we have helped thousands of young Romanians to become international students at one of our partner universities (more than 140 in 2014).

    In 2010 we started AdmitereOnline.ro, a national platform that allows streamlined online applications to the Romanian universities, eliminating the need for multiple travels to universities to file the applications (the traditional way).

    Because more and more people wanted our help to apply to a wider range of international universities, in 2011 we started UNIVERSALIO - the counselling service that helps students apply to any university in the world (it turns out that more than 60% of our beneficiaries work with us to apply to the world’s 20 best universities).

    We have always promoted studying abroad as a personal development opportunity, with the idea that, one day, Romanian graduates of international universities will return to help the betterment of Romania by using their knowledge, their skills, their networks and their pro-active attitude. We took this idea one step further at the end of the end of 2011 by breaking ground with REVIRO – a career development service meant to facilitate the return of Romanians with international academic and/or professional experience by giving them career opportunities here.

    Other initiatives over the years, that are momentarily on hold: HOTPOT – a project meant to prove that we can operate in Romania students facilities at international standards; the EDUCATION FORUM – an event meant to create a networking and learning platform for the decision makers in the Romanian educational system; an initiative to build a national marketing & recruitment platform for international students coming to study in Romania.

    The EDUCATIVA team has grown significantly over the years. The people involved in our projects are young (with an average age of 24 years), proactive and many have international experience. And they are dedicated to helping young Romanians whilst developing themselves as professionals.
