Case study

Identification of Suitable Partners






BONARD was tasked to map the landscape of degree-granting higher education institutions (HEIs) in France, Italy, and Spain in order to identify institutions with a student population exceeding 5,000 students.

More than 220 universities and their 1,340 faculties were screened to determine a shortlist of key targets eligible for further approach, helping the client to efficiently narrow down its outreach and the scope of the business opportunity.

Thanks to our long-term industry experience, market knowledge and intelligence, and professional and results-driven staff, we are more time- and cost-efficient than our clients could be.
