Recruiting students from India and the Middle East requires a dedicated strategy and there’s no one-size-fits-all approach. We have a solution that works for each type of institution.
In an ideal world, our focused recruiting trips would allow you to showcase your institution and your programs in a small-group setting in India and the Middle East. It’s been the perfect platform to connect with students and inspire them to explore an overseas education.
However, given the disruption caused by the global pandemic, we have developed a suite of services that will ensure you continue making meaningful connections with students, parents, and other key stakeholders and make progress toward your recruiting goals.
Our trips take you into hard-to-reach national curricula schools across India and the Middle East where you’ll have an opportunity to showcase your institution and your programs in a small-group setting. Our approach enables you to really connect with students and inspire them to explore an overseas education.
Don’t just stop with a trip or two. The best way to develop your brand and enhance recruiting success is by establishing a year-round presence which allows you to stay “top-of-mind” and personalize your engagement with each student. However, establishing and managing an overseas office, especially in India, is easier said than done. The legal, regulatory, and HR challenges can be cumbersome and navigating the cultural waters can be difficult. The good news is, you don’t have to go it alone.
We provide institutions a year-round, on-the-ground presence through our unique consortium partnership model. Our Center for Global Education and our pan-India staff serve as your in-country representatives and advance your efforts through a series of carefully crafted strategic initiatives. You can rest assured that your message is being communicated year-round in an ethical, credible, transparent and timely manner.
The way you see India, the way you interact with students, the way you connect with parents!
On our recruiting trips, we expect you to go beyond facts and figures and instead, focus on inspiring the next generation of global leaders. We help you bring your campus to life through storytelling and meaningful conversations with students, families, counselors and school administrators.
