Engagement Opportunities

  • Strategic Consulting 
Strategic consulting engagements are designed to meet the unique context and priorities of institutional stakeholders. These consulting engagements inform and design data-driven internationalization strategies for higher education institutions. A sample list of projects led by Dr. Rahul Choudaha included:
- Developing a five-year strategic enrollment and international student success plan for a public institution in California. Institution already has a large representation of international students and aims to grow in a sustainable manner that aligns institutional and student success.
- Developing a strategic enrollment plan for a public institution in the Pacific. The institution had a very little representation of international students at undergraduate level and was constrained by budget and geography. It aimed to build a capacity for recruiting and supporting international students.
- Developing a plan for deepening the understanding of Indian and Chinese master's students at a leading private institution in New York. The institution had a large number of international students from these two countries and wanted to improve the quality of applicants and diversify the applicant pool.
- Developing a comprehensive enrollment strategy for a private institution in Philadelphia. The institution is well-recognized in the region, however, does not figure high among international students. The project provided a data-driven perspective on international student enrollment.
