About Us | Context

It's Not About Us.


It's About You.

Context is really about you. More than that, our work is about empowering your perspective. We exist to support your educational journey and provide the insights you need to make the most informed decisions about your future.

Yet, we do have a story to tell. And the more you know about us, the more you'll understand how we're uniquely positioned to help. Two things you may already guess: We're passionate about education, and we're focused on delivering data-driven insights.

Our Purpose

We empower your decision-making.

There are more than 30,000 online degrees offered from more than 600 colleges and universities. And with new programs being added all the time, finding the best fit for you is no easy task.
That's where Context comes in.

We've created the world's largest directory of online degree programs — all to help you make an informed decision. Our custom-built portal is backed by research and expertise that can't be found anywhere else. We use proprietary methods and real-time analytics to gather and compare all of the variables you're researching: university reputation, accreditation, tuition, and admission requirements, just to name a few. Then we aggregate the data to deliver unique, personalized results based on your specific needs and goals.

When it comes to your education and selecting the right program, you don't have to make your decisions in the dark. With Context, you can leverage our personalized recommendations to compare all of your options and find the program that's perfect for you.

Our Process

It's not what we look for that makes us different. It's what we see.

Our mission is to provide you with a complete and clear picture of your options as you research online degree programs. We want to expand your frame of reference and give you all the information you need to make the right decision.

How do we make that happen? We analyze everything about online degree programs — from faculty to tuition. We evaluate the whole story. We help you see the big picture. This is the foundational factor that makes us truly unique: It's our ability to connect the dots, analyze information, and uncover hidden truths.
And here's how we do it:

  • We hire the best researchers, academics, and experts to study the online programs available today.
  • We use proprietary algorithms to compare and contrast seemingly similar degrees.
  • We compile more survey results than all of our competitors — combined.
  • We examine employment statistics, government data, and journal articles.
  • We interview thousands of faculty, students, alumni, and employers to gain new insights.
  • We retrieve data from disparate sources and turn it into meaningful information.
  • We leverage our connections with top organizations like LinkedIn and Google.

In the end, it's our depth of knowledge that puts us in a position to make personalized recommendations. Our collective efforts create measurable results and immeasurable pride. Because the greatest return on our investment is knowing that we're changing lives. That's the power of Context.
