Our name (pronounced “ex-eye”) and logo are a reflection of the critical role we play in shaping our own lives and the world around us.

In mathematics, “X” is a variable, a problem that needs to be solved, and “i” stands for the personal responsibility and power to solve the problem. Brought together, “Xi” reflects our commitment to not only identifying problems in the world, but also becoming part of the solution.

the problem

Traditional education models are not able to match the pace of technological change. Their approach fails to meet industry and employers’ need to hire people with hands-on experience, who can hit the ground running.

the solution

This is where Academy Xi comes in – we teach high-demand skills across Human-Centred Design, Tech & Data, and Business & Marketing, to meet the insatiable need for job-ready talent.
