Higher education services

Achieve sustainable transformation and digital campus to deliver better outcomes for students.


Higher education institutions today are under immense pressure to manage escalating operating costs, eroding funding streams, competition from non-traditional educators entering the higher education space and mounting concerns about the value of the education dollar among students, parents, taxpayers and public officials. In response, institutions must develop new strategies to implement sustainable, structural change that will ease administrative costs while attracting target student populations, enhancing the quality of services provided, improving program efficiencies and optimizing opportunities for revenue generation.

Accenture has teamed with educational institutions around the world to design and deploy successful strategies and technology solutions that improve efficiency and performance. As a result, universities can redirect resources to support the academic and research mission.
