Emerging and frontier market exploration

Many institutions are over-reliant on a few main markets, and although we know this is dangerous, it’s an easy trap to fall into.

Diversifying your source markets is a long-haul game which is more likely to produce a steady drip-feed of students rather than a rush of substantial numbers typically seen from huge markets like China and India.

We take a two-pronged approach to market exploration to make a compelling case for investing in new markets:

  • Data aquisition - data and anaysis on emerging and frontier markets, giving particular attention to demographic, economic, technological and political transitions;
  • Tailored messaging - customised marketing and recruitment efforts in-country based on student profiles and programme demand.

Let us help you identify opportunities for developing or expanding your recruitment activities in the countries with the strongest growth over the next 5-15 years.


Transformative strategies

The Internet has been around for over 25 years now, but many institutions are still struggling to align their international strategy with their digital strategy. Given the speed of technological advancement, this challenge will only become greater and more complex as time passes. Need a helping hand? We thought so.

Transforming your organisation to meet tomorrow’s students is no light task. Not only does it require your leaders to shift to a digital mindset, it involves changing nearly everything about the way you work today. Sound scary? Don’t worry – we’ll take it step by step.

We have a proprietary 17-step programme we can take you through to prepare you for change and enable you to create opportunities within disruption, focusing on your institution’s strengths and goals.

We take a lateral view across the whole of your organisation and then drill down to produce a holistic, strategy-first approach towards operating or effecting change.

We can work with you on an individual project basis, or on a monthly retainer for longer-term growth and development. Contact us today!
