In 2018, Coursedog's co-founders & college students Justin Wenig & Nick Diao became frustrated when they could not register for popular computer science classes on campus. After investigating how universities built curriculum plans, they found surprisingly that most schools managed these processes with spreadsheets or legacy tools.
In partnership with early customers Columbia University & BYU, Coursedog developed Higher Education's first Curriculum Success platform. Today, Coursedog is the only solution that manages schedule optimization, curriculum and catalog management in one platform. In 2020, Coursedog became the market leader, signing on 60 new university partners such as City University of New York System, Columbia University & Stanford University and growing it's team to 45 employees and serving over 700,000 students.
