In light of the number of significant forces that are continuing to impact higher education, BCG has conducted a benchmarking study to understand how global institutions are responding to these forces as they relate to undergraduate education Twelve institutions participated in the study. The study explored a common set of topics across the participating institutions to enable comparisons to be made The work highlighted that while in some aspects of undergraduate education change is relatively slow, in other areas a wide range of experimentation is under way This document summarizes the forces at play and excerpts from the research, highlights some areas of particular interest, and suggests a set of questions for university leaders to consider

Bridge International Academies is the world’s largest chain of primary and pre-primary schools bringing world-class education to the poorest of the poor, democratizing the right to succeed.

Bridge leverages research, technology, and data analysis in order to standardize and scale the entire lifecycle of high-quality education delivery and to drive continuous improvement across all aspects of operations.  This includes how academies are built, teachers are selected and trained, lessons are delivered and monitored for improvement, and more. Bridge pupils gain an additional .34 standard deviation on core reading skills and an additional .51 standard deviation on maths compared to their peers in neighboring schools, based on USAID-designed exams administered by an independent monitoring and evaluation company – this translated into over 250 additional days of learning. Thanks to economies of scale, Bridge is able to charge just $6 a month per pupil on average with academies reaching operational sustainability after just one year.

The first Bridge International Academy opened in the Mukuru slum in Nairobi, Kenya in 2009.  Today there are hundreds and Bridge continues to expand across Africa and Asia.  New academies are opening at a rate of one every 2.5 days.  With a mission of Knowledge for all, Bridge plans to educate 10,000,000 children across a dozen countries by 2025.
