In the big and growing industry of international education there are a lot of international education agencies but why aren't there more large education agencies?
There are thousands and thousands of education agencies scattered all across the globe, selling courses of hundreds of countries and thousands of colleges/universities. Estimates suggest the number of agencies selling Australia's institutions are around 7k, sending more than 378k students per year.
But most of them are small to medium size businesses. It's a fragmented industry with - we believe - 200 large education agencies in the whole planet. So how can an industry worth US$150B have just a handful of large agencies.
At EducationLink we work with agencies of all sizes, and we have a theory.
