University partnerships – corporate, government, academic

UNIVERSITY PARTNERSHIPS are an important way to

  • Co-brand with other eminent institutions
  • Enhance the national and international profile of the university
  • Generate teaching and research opportunities for faculty
  • Enrich the student educational experience

There are different types of university partnerships, each with its own rationale and strategic objectives:

ACADEMIC, which lead to student and faculty exchanges, research collaboration, joint programs, and dual degrees

CORPORATE, which enable a university to leverage off the brand, infrastructure, resources, and market expertise of private enterprises

GOVERNMENT, which open the door to research grants, financial aid, national conferences, new branch campuses, and public policy initiatives.

If structured properly, each type of partnership can be instrumental in enhancing the university’s brand, generating financial resources, entering new markets, and expanding globally.
