About Us

Edu Alliance Group, Inc. (EAG), founded in 2014, is a higher education consulting firm for colleges and universities. We are in Bloomington, Indiana, and Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. We assist higher education institutions worldwide on a variety of mission-critical projects. Our consultants are accomplished leaders who share the benefit of their experience in diagnosing and solving challenges. We have provided consulting and executive search services for over 35 higher education institutions in Australia, Egypt, Georgia, India, Kazakhstan, Morocco, Nigeria, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, and the United States.


We focus on supporting educational institutions, government agencies, and investors. We take a pragmatic, evidence-based approach rather than an abstract theoretical perspective. Our firm and its team of advisors have served as senior education organization officers and are experienced practitioners.

In contrast to traditional Big 4 type of management consultants (which typically engage young business and finance graduates as full-time consultants), Edu Alliance consultants are all former or current accomplished university/college leaders. We share the benefit of their experience in diagnosing and solving your challenges. Our consultants earn the respect and trust of our academic clients.  Edu Alliance strives to provide conclusions and recommendations that are honest, pragmatic, and straightforward for immediate implementation by the Client.
