Global Access to Research on Every Critical Issue

Colleges and universities face an unprecedented combination of pressures, with shrinking revenue streams, static graduation rates, and enormous competition for enrollment.


The Global Research Partnership is designed to help leaders respond to their greatest challenges and move strategic initiatives forward by providing full access to EAB’s higher education experts and library of solutions.


Our enrollment partners see a 7:1 average ROI and a 7% average annual net tuition revenue increase in the first year of partnership.

Lisa Kujawa, Associate Provost for Enrollment Management and Outreach

“Prior to our partnership, we hired pricey, one-time consultants. The difference with EAB is that it’s an integrated, lasting relationship. Now, whenever our board makes a strategic decision, we always talk to EAB. It’s truly a testament—they are totally on board.”
