Leveraging dLocal’s best-in-class cross-border payments platform, Great Learning’s learners in Mexico, Brazil, and Colombia are now able to pay in their local currency and in up to 12 installments, significantly improving the affordability of its programs.
Programs offered by Great Learning are developed in collaboration with prestigious academic institutions such as Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Stanford Graduate School of Business, the University of Texas at Austin, Wharton School of Management, and more. By supporting alternative payment methods offered by dLocal, it becomes more attainable for Great Learning’s Latin American learners to manage their finances while studying at these renowned global institutions.
Great Learning’s Co-Founder, Arjun Nair, stated: “Installments are just the beginning of our joint journey. By partnering with dLocal, we want to accelerate our mission of offering high-quality education to learners and businesses in all of Latin America. Enabling learners to break their payments up into 12 monthly installments results in financial inclusion and learners can plan their program fees according to their personal financial situation.”
“dLocal welcomes Great Learning as a partner in Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, and beyond,” said Joaquin Moreno, dLocal’s Head of APAC. “We’re ready to support their growth throughout Latin America with localized payment methods that make higher education and upskilling from global universities more accessible.”
Great Learning and dLocal have been working on offering localized payments in Mexico, Brazil & Colombia concluding with the implementation of payments with interest-free installments. The intention is to keep working to provide the best payment experience for customers in these countries and other countries in the region.
The partnership between Great Learning and dLocal showcases Great Learning’s dedication to its learners, dLocal’s track record of success in Latin America, and its expertise in emerging markets.
