Our approach focuses on providing highly personalized educational and mentoring support, tailored to each individual’s values, interests, personality, and skills, with a keen eye on the specific demands of the job market and industry requirements.
Unlike traditional university settings where students attend lectures in classrooms and learn from conventional textbooks, Cademix takes a more dynamic approach. We employ an agile methodology to adapt our activities and requirements to suit each member’s unique needs, keeping in mind the rapidly changing job market in today’s VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity) world. Our commitment is to equip our members with the skills and knowledge necessary to thrive in their chosen fields, and to foster a lifelong love of learning and personal growth.

Our founder and CEO, Dr. Javad Zarbakhsh, is the only fixed team member, steering the institute towards its mission and vision. However, the institute’s team is continuously evolving, consisting of numerous freelancers, virtual assistants, and AI assistants, who contribute to the wide range of services we offer.
In addition, Cademix is an active member of regional and international networks, such as COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology). This membership enables us to dynamically bring in lecturers, supervisors, and experts from our network on an as-needed basis.
