Education

Customized approach.

Parthenon-EY is a global consultancy dedicated to the education sector providing end-to-end services to education providers, policymakers and investors.

We have served as strategic advisors to the global education sector since 1991, completing more than 900 projects across 80 countries. By working across both the public and private sector, we offer clients a perspective that is challenging for any single organization to access: we see both the “supply” and “demand” sides of education around the world, and monitor trends as they play out on a national and global level. Parthenon, in combination with the broader EY organization, offers our clients a whole suite of capabilities, from strategy through implementation. We leverage our experience to help our clients develop actionable strategies for growth so your organization can reach its full potential.
