Press release: 20 November, 2020

Finnish Global Education Solutions Ltd. (FGES) has acquired KOULU Group’s business. KOULU’s operations are transferred entirely under FGES.  

This is a natural step, as both companies have similar visions for the development of global education services. As a result, FGES can provide more extensive education development services to its customers. KOULU’s expertise in early childhood education and teacher training combined with FGES’ professional education and capacity building expertise result in a versatile service supply that benefits the company’s customers and partners.

“By acquiring KOULU’s operations, FGES can serve its customers and partners comprehensively. The leading idea of FGES is that with access to versatile and innovative education solutions, everyone can thrive in the changing world and is able to release their full potential”, says Risto Vahanen, Chairman of FGES.

”I’m very happy to secure the continuation of all the good work we have done within KOULU Group and that we are able to continue to serve our customers in the future under FGES”, visions Antti Kaskinen, CEO of FGES.

The acquisition will not affect ongoing cooperations and partnerships and will not require any actions from customers of either company. The teacher training certificates issued by KOULU Group will be valid as stated and can be renewed in the future by FGES.
