Executive Summary

Client's Challenge

Our Partner – a comprehensive university in the greater Seoul area – began investing in global engagement several years back, establishing partnerships with new external partners and integrating global engagement within its academic, applied research and administrative units. Preempting a multi-year domestic enrolment decline coupled with reduced government support, our partner saw its opportunity. In 2016, they sought to establish a global institute to:

  • Establish itself as a global education hub, serving as a conduit for world-ready education and training that links South East Asia to North America.
  • Increase global learners on campus by partnering with education agencies, scaling-up recruitment efforts and revamping their global brand strategy.
  • Expand the number of global field placements for students and staff within institutions in growth markets, such as Canada.
  • Deliver bespoke training solutions for industry and government clients aligning institutional capability to market demand.
