Academic Assembly’s mission is to simplify the challenges of global enterprise by providing a suite of services customized to the needs of its institutional clients. Apart from a few well-financed and heavily endowed universities, most international offices are understaffed and under-resourced. Those that are close to full-strength are lacking in training, proper support and guidance. Compounding this are the huge hurdles imposed by foreign governments and difficulties in bridging cultural, academic and business practices. While most university administrations don’t like viewing what they do as commercial, the rest of the world will often see it differently, which is why a growing number of institutions see Academic Assembly as a partner in growing their international enterprise.
Academic Assembly’s Services are designed to increase opportunity and reduce risk for our client institutions. Through service contracts and subscription-based services, Academic Assembly’s team of business development analysts and experts will guide your current staff to competitive levels or the company will provide those necessary services on your behalf. We take a consultative approach to your internationalization and after an initial assessment, will recommend, then deliver a practical plan to achieve the desired success.
We start each engagement with a candid discussion as to the goals of the institution and the history of their global pursuits. We then look to develop a practical plan to move forward and provide our clients with a candid assessment of their options and an honest approach to the solutions. We are experts, not miracle workers and when we make a pledge or a promise, we will keep it. Academic Assembly was created by a team of experienced business and administrative experts who each bring unique perspective and dimension to the firm and each client’s success adds to the success of the portfolio.
