We focus on the education sector providing support to educational institutions, government agencies, and investors. Our firm and its team of advisors have served as senior education organization officers and are experienced practitioners. We take a pragmatic, evidence-based approach rather than an abstract theoretical perspective.

In contrast to traditional Big 4 type of management consultants (which typically engage young business and finance graduates as full-time consultants), Edu Alliance consultants are all former or current accomplished university/college leaders. We share the benefit of their experience to diagnose and solve your challenges.
