What We Work For

The Packaging School addresses a global need to break down traditional physical barriers for packaging education and supply more qualified and engaged workers to the packaging industry. As an online community, PackagingSchool.com connects knowledge seekers with knowledge providers. The cornerstone of our content is an exclusive license of a professional packaging curriculum developed at Clemson University. We are bridging the gap between academia and industry by working with subject matter experts who are veterans in the industry to expand the breadth and depth of our online catalog. The result is an engaging way for all types of individuals, from packaging newcomers to longtime industry insiders, to improve their working knowledge and understanding of the packaging industry, which intimately connects with people and trade across the world on a daily basis.


Our Mission: The Packaging School is breaking down the barriers to packaging education and lifting the veil on this essential industry.
