Mergers & Affiliations

Navigate the uncertainty and
complexities of change.

Increasing competition, paired with shifting demographics and consumer behaviors, have contributed to turbulence within the higher education industry.  In recent years dozens of college and universities have closed; more will do so, while many others find themselves facing extremely challenging financial circumstances.

AGB Consulting delivers educational sessions for your board centered on mergers and affiliations to help you:

  • Develop buy-side and sell-side strategies
  • Create plans and processes to become “affiliation ready”
  • Determine your institution’s prosperity gap (quality of earnings analysis)
  • Align the appropriate merger vs. private system affiliation strategy
  • Identify candidates for merger and/or private system affiliation

AGB Consulting is the strategic leader in merger and private system affiliations. Let us work with you to determine the best build, buy and affiliate strategies.
