The Higher Education industry is even flatter after the pandemic. Hybrid learning approaches are not an option but the norm. Hence, the globe is your new playing field for growth.
GOING GLOBAL can mean a lot of things. So, it's important to define the ambition and translate this into action:
Student Recruitment: recruiting students from overseas can be the lowest hanging fruits. Actions need to be measured and defined.
Exchange Programs: establishing links with other universities require your academic programs to be aligned with international calendars. Identifying the right institution becomes the next challenge.
Faculty Exchange: can you receive foreign faculty to teach at your institution? Do you have faculty moving abroad for a semester?
Joint Research: if your academic institution has a research focus, you can explore research projects with other universities overseas.
Connect with your alumni: do you keep track of your alumni? Not all of your graduates stay local. Overseas alumni can help you boost your brand locally.
Many other collaborations with academic and non-academic partners can be explored, to get more established and known in overseas markets.
