Mind expanding business

Pearson is a world leader in education, business
information and consumer books. Our businesses expand the mind and fire the imagination.

Our goal is to make our businesses more valuable to our
customers and to our shareholders. These past few years, we've done that by investing in content, technology, international expansion and efficiency. That strategy paid
off again in 2006, with Pearson's best ever results.
