Education
Have a business challenge?

We support the people, processes and technology solutions that empower educators to serve their students. Like our education clients, North Highland consultants are constantly learning and teaching. We know that seeking and sharing knowledge is what truly changes our world, and we are passionate about helping educators fulfill their missions. We’ve worked with top-tier higher education systems and institutions, school districts, elementary and secondary schools, and education leaders throughout the United States and United Kingdom to support their work developing our world’s future leaders.

How We Help

Higher Education

We help education leaders develop actionable strategies that drive value for systems, institutions, educators, and students. Then we work with our clients to execute those strategies, delivering complex initiatives on time and on budget.

University Medical Centers and Research Institutions

We have extensive subject matter expertise working with higher education institutions that operate or are affiliated with healthcare providers, medical centers, and research institutes.

Program and Project Management

We know a great project management office is not just a spreadsheet factory that churns out indicators. Our consultants get projects completed faster by knowing our clients well, integrating as part of the team, working in the field, solving problems, and clearing roadblocks.

ERP and Student Information Systems

We work with educational institutions on the front end to create a holistic IT strategy that serves students, educators, and administrators. We then help institutions procure, integrate, and embed systems – including navigating the organizational change management that always accompanies a major upgrade.

Student Experience

We work with educational institutions to design and implement frictionless interactions with students, ensuring a good experience with student portals that integrate well with back-office systems.
