Which Partnership Model is Right for Your Institution?

Has your institution considered a third-party partnership to more effectively develop and expand its program offerings? To determine whether or not a partnership is right for your institution, start by asking whether you can quickly scale and sustain high-quality programs and still compete in the market. If the answer is ‘no’ or ‘not’ sure’, answer the following questions about your institution’s needs and initiatives to see what kind of partnership model might be best for you.

Based on your selections, we recommend the model of:

Fee-for-service

A Fee-for-Service, or Project Work, model can be a great option for your institution. Your school possesses the high level of infrastructure, capital, and resources needed to execute and sustain its programmatic goals independently, but may need augmentation services or support from a third-party partner on a specific project.

Based on your selections, we recommend the model of:

Co-Investment

A Co-Investment model can be a great option for your institution. There is likely some level of infrastructure, capital, and/or resources in place to execute and sustain your programmatic goals independently over time, but you may need support from a third-party partner in the early phases of the initiative. In this model, the upfront financial contribution would be shared between you and the partner.

Based on your selections, we recommend the model of:

Tuition Revenue Share

Due to limited infrastructure and capacity, a Tuition Revenue Share model can be a great option for your institution to develop, execute, and sustain its programmatic goals. In this model, the third-party partner would contribute all upfront and ongoing investment and resources, meaning there is a very low financial cost and risk to your institution.
