Huron Consulting Group Launches Education Innovation Solution For Universities

Stocks in this article: HURN

Huron Consulting Group (NASDAQ: HURN), a leading provider of business consulting services, today announced the launch of its Education Innovation solution for universities and colleges. The Education Innovation solution guides universities through focused discussions with stakeholders and a series of supporting analyses to develop strategies that position higher education clients for success in a rapidly evolving competitive landscape.

“Maintaining the highest standards of academic quality, in an era of intense financial and increasingly global competitive pressures, means higher education has to innovate,” said Laura Yaeger, executive vice president, Huron Education. “Huron partners with colleges and universities around the world to develop comprehensive strategies to use innovative technologies and business models to position themselves to achieve their academic missions.”

Huron’s Education Innovation solution helps institutions develop, evaluate and implement strategies that take advantage of the acceleration in technology, globalization and competitive business models in academic and research settings.

“We work closely with stakeholders and institutional leaders to build a shared baseline understanding of institutional readiness, market landscape and competitive positioning. Then we help identify goals and develop strategies to realize them. Often, this is a three dimensional analysis of university strengths, market opportunity and contribution margin,” said Edwin Eisendrath, managing director, Huron Education. “Our strategic roadmaps include implementation considerations so that, whether the plan involves significant institutional change or simply building on existing institutional strengths, the path is clear.”

Huron Education’s strategic offering responds to frequent client questions around mission- and quality-consistent uses of new technologies such as Massively Open Online Courses (MOOCs), the identification of potential new markets, and the potential to develop new revenue streams. The Education Innovation solution builds upon Huron’s industry leading expertise in delivering quality operational, financial, and technology consulting to the higher education marketplace.

“Huron’s Education Innovation offering is an all-encompassing solution that works with institutions to develop actionable strategies by leveraging existing strengths, core values and principles,” said Yaeger. “Huron Education further helps clients design and manage the implementation process and incorporates measurements for benchmarking to support continued success in the global education marketplace.”
