Developing TNE Partnerships is The Core of Our Business Partnership Development Successfully sourcing, vetting and managing the development of transnational education partnerships in equal measure of academic and financial viability has been the cornerstone of our company’s growth since 2016. We currently operate partnerships in Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Vietnam and Indonesia, with further pipeline projects in Dubai, Mauritius and Pakistan on behalf of our Irish / UK Clients. Beyond ensuring an attractive financial return to our client universities, we analyse the elements of academic, institutional and financial due diligence to ensure that the partnership business cases we present continue well beyond the lifetime of our intermediary services. We work with our clients from the initial stage of prospective partner identification and early dialogue through to a more advanced level of consultation that encompasses market compliance, key programme development, annual projections, market price points/contractual minimums and details of programme delivery such as venue, lecturers, marketing & promotion – all compiled to allow a best-informed decision on the prospective partnership. 1.
