42 is designed to bring the best people into the digital industry. We know our students, and we know their passions. Through a different type of pedagogy, one based on peer-to-peer learning, we prepare them to anticipate and respond to your company’s needs. This method builds on what Nicolas Sadirac and his team have developed for 20 years; a student’s knowledge is acquired through full-spectrum immersion by tackling large projects with highly variable levels of difficulty. In this adaptive environment, each student must show initiative, ingenuity and creativity to achieve his or her objectives.

Students from 42’s Paris campus have attained more than 5,000 offers for internships since 42’s inception in 2013. Data culled in December of 2016 from those students participating in internships revealed:

– 94% of the internship placement mentors from participating companies stated
that they would recommend one of our students for employment.
97% of these mentors had a good or excellent impression of the participating
interns from 42.
– 94% of these student interns met or exceeded the overall goals for employment.
