We’re excited to announce the merger of McGraw-Hill and Cengage. This new global learning company will deliver superior experiences and greater value for students, educators, and professionals worldwide.
The combined company will help accelerate innovation and accessibility, offering seamless integration across our range of learning sciences, adaptive solutions, and learning tools – like McGraw-Hill’s ALEKS and Connect, and Cengage MindTap and WebAssign.
We will strengthen our commitment to offering more affordable options for college students in the U.S. Both Cengage and McGraw-Hill have a track record of pioneering new initiatives to provide value for money, including the Cengage Unlimited subscription and McGraw-Hill’s Inclusive Access program.
