Founded in 1947, Princeton, New Jersey-based Educational Testing Service (ETS) was established to develop, administer and score tests for its sole client, the College Board.
While the College Board is still its biggest customer, nonprofit ETS in recent decades has extended its influence beyond the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT), Advanced Placement (AP) and Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) by serving the testing needs of corporations, government organizations and educational consortia.
With the overall objective of becoming a high-performance business, ETS wanted to intensify the pace of its push into new markets. The company set an aggressive 5- to 10-year revenue growth plan that involved expanding the scope and breadth of its existing market relationships and also developing a more global client base. ETS chose Accenture to help it achieve these goals.
