MasterClass

MasterClass is the streaming platform where the world’s best come together so anyone, anywhere, can access and be inspired by their knowledge and stories. We put you in the room with the creators, thinkers, makers and leaders who have changed the world, so that you can change yours. Members get unprecedented access to 150+ instructors and classes across a wide variety of fields, including Arts & Entertainment, Business, Design & Style, Sports & Gaming, Writing and more. 

Step into Nas’ recording studio and Gordon Ramsay’s kitchen, and go behind the big screen with James Cameron. Design your career with Elaine Welteroth, get ready to win with Lewis Hamilton, perfect your pitch with Shonda Rhimes and discover your inner negotiator with Chris Voss.

Cinematic visuals and close-up, hands-on demonstrations make you feel like you’re one-on-one with the instructors as you learn on your own terms—in bite-size pieces or in a single binge. For those looking to learn by doing, Sessions by MasterClass offers a structured, 30-day curriculum where members can roll up their sleeves, get hands-on and learn meaningful skills through step-by-step guidance from world-class instructors and an engaged community of peers.

Inspiring a learning lifestyle in everyone

Mission

To unlock human potential by inspiring a learning lifestyle in everyone.

Values

Transform Members’ Lives

We are here because we want to change lives. Everything we do is to help our members unlock their full potential through learning -- if we do this we can have a lasting impact not only on their lives, but on the planet. 

Build a Legacy

We are building a library of knowledge from the greatest minds in the world. We have the opportunity and responsibility to do the best work of our lives so that it stands the test of time and honors our instructors, our members and ourselves.

Think Differently, Act Together

Wisdom comes from anywhere. When we stay humble, support each other, and bring our diverse backgrounds together to achieve the same mission, there’s no limit to what we can accomplish.

Be Passionately Curious

We never forget the power of learning, asking, and seeking deeper understanding. We always assume that we are only 1% of the way there, and we savor the journey.

Diversity & Inclusion

We learn from the best—and we are committed to being our best.

We want to live as global citizens in an equitable and just world where we listen to each other and learn from each other.

Our workplace, workforce, and marketplace approach demonstrate our commitment to move toward this ideal. The broad range of our instructors—and of the classes they teach—demonstrates our commitment to amplify and elevate diverse and disparate voices.

We stand against systemic racism, police brutality, and all acts of prejudice or violence targeting any group of people in our society and communities.

We believe in the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion. But we also recognize that merely holding these beliefs is not enough. This is why we’ve committed to visible and deliberate action with these six steps.

Social impact

In partnership with Lewis Hamilton, the first MasterClass Community Ambassador, MasterClass will distribute 200,000 free annual memberships to underserved UK communities focusing on organizations serving Black youth and STEAM programming. Through this partnership, Lewis and MasterClass hope to offer new ways of learning and boost students’ opportunities to advance their knowledge and their futures.

MasterClass Grants provides donations of MasterClass annual memberships to accredited charitable organizations serving communities in need at no cost to the organization.

Our communities of focus are low-income families, BIPOC youth, and current or formerly incarcerated individuals. If your organization supports one or more of these communities that you believe could benefit from the gift of learning, please submit an application and our team will be in touch.
