Strategic Portfolio Development™

Insights. Expertise. Strategy. We’ll combine these to create programs that set your learners up for high-impact outcomes and efficiently scale your capabilities, all under a flexible partnership model targeted to your goals.

Creating your “smart” portfolio

Strategic Portfolio Development™ is an efficient way to expand your academic portfolio and meet market demand. It starts with market analysis and ends with launching career-connected programs that match learners’ needs and employers’ demands.

Together, here’s what we’ll do:

  • Maximize the impact of existing programs

    Our modular approach makes it easy to align your portfolio with the most in-demand programs. First, well repackage and enhance your existing courses. Then we’ll fill in the gaps with new in-demand concentrations or certificate options. The result? High-impact, career-connected programs that give learners—and employers—what they want.

  • Create cross-sector opportunities

    Employers want graduates who specialize in more than one subject, so we help learners get the edge with interdisciplinary credentials. How? We’ll discover where your existing programs intersect and develop a strategy to bring faculty, courses, and curriculum together. The result? Competitive programs that educate graduates with competitive skillsets.

  • Make you a market insider

    With the latest market research and insights, you’ll know how to fill gaps in the market. We’ll ensure your programs meet tomorrow’s employment needs by intelligently applying education, employment, and lifestyle data.
