What They Do

Our mission is to expand student success rates in universities by using digital technology and data analytics. To do this, Excel@Uni has developed Mila, a cloud-based tool that aggregates, tracks and analyses students’ academic and personal progress at the most granular level, effectively providing a live 360-degree view of students’ progress. At-risk students are identified sooner, and automated interventions are deployed informing students where they can access additional support before they reach crisis mode.
