Business Description: Navitas Limited (NVT) is an education services provider operating in multiple cities around the world, providing educational services including university programs, language training, workforce education, and student recruitment.
Strategy Analysis: NVT embeds itself into partner universities who welcome the additional direct revenues NVT delivers, as well as the expansion of supply of high-margin foreign students into the universities¬ī own degree and diploma courses. Contracts with universities generally have a term of at least 5 years allowing NVT to become well established. The engagement of qualified academics at partner universities to develop course content underpins curriculum quality. In addition, the application of the universities¬ī moderation processes ensures academic standards equivalent to those at the university. NVT is leveraging its domestic success to expand offshore into other English speaking regions such as the UK, Canada and the US, which hold similar attraction to non-English speaking students.
