Ducasse Education: The System

Ducasse Education is a system of schools operating around the world. The system's key benefits are:

  • Ensuring the highest pedagogical standards and learning quality through the centralization of pedagogical development and the standardization of operating procedures.
  • Ensuring student placement and career advancement by offering a system wide Alumni network association.
  • Leveraging the pedagogical development by delivering normalized programs and curriculums across schools.
  • Leveraging student recruitment efforts by pooling recruitment budgets across schools and by developing coordinated recruitment plans.
  • Leveraging branding efforts by pooling marketing budgets across schools and by operating institutes in multiple markets
  • Enabling student, faculty and staff mobility across schools.

The system is made of normalized educational programs that are delivered across multiple campuses.

Each school, or institute

  • Represents a campus in the system (the physical location of the delivery of the normalized programs).
  • Operates programs that meet the local market needs. Thus, each school or institute's management retains the full decisions as to which program offer on its campus, as well as tuition fees.
  • Contributes marketing & recruitment, pedagogical development, and Alumni network fees to global funds that are managed centrally. This enables the pooling of resources in order to gain from scale without having to operate gigantic campuses.

Ducasse Institutes are operated by partner institutions that agree, through a master agreement and operational agreements(s), to develop one more more institutes in a specified geography, and to operate them at the standards of Ducasse Education.
