KPMG: Six Key Steps for Higher Education Institutions Expanding
November 12, 2012
By Rob Starr, Content Manager, Big4.com
According to the new report, Extending the Campus – A Lesson in Successful Global Expansion for Higher Education Institutions, as demand for international education rises (growing at an average annual rate of 7.1 percent between 2000-2010), institutions are hoping to take advantage by broadening their footprints and brands in new geographies in both education and research.
The report, which outlines key lessons learned in transnational expansion, features insights from KPMG’s Rowley and other KPMG partners in the educational sector, supported by four case studies from higher education institutions in Canada, India, the Netherlands and the UK.
Six Key Steps for Successful Transnational Expansion
- Outline the business case for expansion.
- Develop the full business plan.
- Conduct due diligence and negotiate the full agreement.
- Approve the agreement.
- Implement the business plan.
- Evaluate and review the project.
An example of this new approach is China which, according to research cited in the report, has invested US$20 billion in education since the 1990s and increased enrollment from five million post-secondary students in the mid-1990s to more than 34 million in 2010.
