Education Practice - Overview

Parthenon has served as an advisor to the education sector since our inception in 1991. Our Education Practice – the first of its kind across management consulting firms – has an explicit mission and vision to be the leading strategy advisor to the global education industry. To achieve this, we invest significantly in dedicated management and team resources to ensure that our global expertise extends across public sector and non-profit education providers, foundations, private companies and service providers, and investors.

Parthenon’s Education Practice offers a dedicated practice of professionals with on-the-ground experience across multiple industries and projects in education strategy, reform, innovation and implementation. Our breadth of experience and depth of service as strategic advisors to the education industry is unmatched, with knowledge that spans all levels of education including early childhood, elementary, secondary, higher, vocational and professional education across both public and private sectors. Since the formal establishment of the Education Practice in 2001, Parthenon has worked on over 900 education projects across the globe.

Consistent across all Education Practice engagements is our hand-in-hand approach to client partnerships. Together we generate data-driven and actionable strategies that result in meaningful and measurable improvements in business and learning outcomes.  We pride ourselves in a boutique approach to building life-long client relationships through dedicated Education Practice teams that understand our clients' unique needs.  Our recognition that customized solutions are required to deliver differentiated outcomes for education clients has often resulted in ground-breaking strategies that have become models for sector-wide change. 

Most importantly, our Education Practice has been built by individuals who are personally and professionally passionate about education - we attract the best people to our practice and deliver transformative results to our clients. Ultimately, our experiences with private and public-sector organizations provide a unique institutional capability to serve education clients of any type in any country around the world.
