Consortium Management


Let us help you cultivate, implement, and manage your consortium.

Why build a consortium?

A consortium offers institutions and companies an avenue to connect, share and expand their educational offerings for students and employees.

Higher Learning Partners’ model enables member institutions to seamlessly share courses, credits, and tuition, while helping them expand their degree programs and access new enrollments and revenue with minimal upfront investment.  

For Professional and Continuing Education, a consortium provides companies an opportunity to increase their educational offerings for employees to optimize individual, team, and organizational performance. Our partners can offer a flexible approach to utilize existing training programs or develop a fully customized program to meet the individual needs of their company and employees.
