Education Markets

Heidrick & Struggles’ Education Markets sector specialists focus on leadership search and advisory to providers of products, services, solutions and technologies to the worldwide education economy. The practice’s global presence provides clients extensive sector knowledge, experience and perspective necessary for outstanding results and success.

The business of education – one of the most significant emerging trends in capacity-building over the last decade – is now a global phenomenon and at-scale in many regions of the world.  In addition, the separation between the traditional roles of education institutions, students, families and employers have now blurred in the pursuit of better outcomes from the societal spend devoted to education. The ever-widening interest of investors such as private equity, public markets and other financial players has added the complex dynamic of performance when considering search strategies to yield the right talent for leading these organizations.

Our consulting teams work side-by-side with our clients, providing a broad range of complementary services – often in advance of a specific need – that ultimately add substantial value that would otherwise go unrealized. We understand the competencies required for success because we work with hundreds of leaders every year creating assessment and leadership development programs.
