For many colleges and universities across the United States, globalization of education is a viable business model. Like most organizations, the ever-expanding global marketplace and immediate connectivity of people worldwide has mandated that an international growth strategy become a key component of any forward-thinking educational enterprise. As our education sector clients already know, expanding the availability of your premier academic programs to growing markets like India, China, Brazil, the Middle East and Mexico and recalibrating your relationships in more established markets, such as in Europe, can have a lasting effect on your bottom line while also supporting the mission and vision of your college or university.
Kegler Brown works with educational institutions in Ohio and throughout the United States to achieve their international growth objectives. Our firm has extensive international transactional experience, which allows us to navigate our clients’ international projects seamlessly and cost-effectively. Whether a university or college’s educational niche is higher education, project-based learning, education support services, the part-time non-traditional student or graduate curricula, investing in a cross-border educational strategy makes sound business sense.
