Globalization Strategy and Planning:
Your institution decided to expand globally.  Where are you expanding to and why? What does success look like? What does it take to achieve it? What are the risks and how do you mitigate them? Leveraging our extensive experience backed by most up-to-date data, CMS Global will work with appropriate personnel and key stakeholders to develop a comprehensive international strategy that includes a roadmap for diversification, growth of your University’s enrollment, and key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure effectiveness.
  • Strategic Planning
  • Market Research and Sizing
  • ROI Analysis
Corporate Development & Partnership Formation:
With hundreds up to thousands of institutions of higher education in any given market, which institution(s) should you explore partnership with that will ultimately lead to win-win outcome? CMS Global conducts corporate development activities to identify, facilitate and execute relationships with overseas Universities.
  • Conduct research to identify suitable universities based on established criteria
  • Initiate, conduct meet and greet as well as qualifying prospective partners
  • Facilitate, coordinate and participate in negotiation, leading to formal partnership
Partnership Operationalization:
Why do most partnerships fail to produce any real and tangible result? There are numerous reasons but lack of intent typically is not one of them.  Through our experience, the biggest missing link is the US institution’s inability to operationalize the partnership, in country and remotely.  In country’s activities add layers of complexity and are very costly.  CMS Global provides in-country operations and project management expertise when operationalizing overseas partnerships.
  • Immediately post agreement, provide all necessary materials and best practices to coordinate communications, and other needed activities to execute against timelines and terms of the partnership
  • Designate and imbed in-country professional(s) to work side by side with your new partner
