International Porto Business School

I’ve been working closely with the Cormack Consultancy Group for the 2 years and I couldn’t be more pleased with the exceptional work they are doing to help Porto Business School internationalized its Programmes through international partnerships, exchange and student outreach. As a matter of fact, we’ve just signed an important partnership with Stirling Management School – a partner we met through CCG!

I strongly recommend CCG’s services and staff, who is always extremely helpful and ready to go the extra mile to accomplish high standard results.

It has been a pleasure working with colleagues at the Cormack Consultancy Group.  The new international collaboration opportunities they provided us at UNA from Europe, Asia, and Africa are unique, diverse, and progressive.  The Cormack team is highly knowledgeable, professional, and efficient.  I recommend their services to any US institution that desires to strategically grow and diversify its international student enrollment both on-campus and online.

The reason we asked CCG to mentor our recruitment team was to increase our knowledge of international recruitment and understand how we could improve our performance.  Claire Axel Berg, who has supported us excellently , and the training she has given has been far beyond our expectations, we are looking forward to continue working with her.

Working with Cormack Consultancy Group for little over a year now has been a thoroughly positive experience. Charles Cormack and his team have proven to be amazing partners, truly dedicated to helping us identify the best partners and enhancing our internationalisation strategy.

Throughout these amazingly difficult times for higher education internationalisation, Cormack Consultancy Group has helped us see new ways into the future and has always shown a true interest in our institutional development, above and beyond any kind of commercial interests.

Vilnius University

I met Charles in 2016, during our first meeting we discussed the teachers training challenges in Lithuania and possible solutions from Cormack Consultancy Group. One of the biggest joys and professional confidence one may experience is working with a company that has a great culture, worldwide network, experience. Leadership in Cormack Consultancy Group is focused on making the education system better than it currently is. A good partnership can scale and develop your University. and indeed last year such a partnership was encouraged by CCG between Vilnius University and Lancaster University.

St. Francis College

Cormack Consultancy Group has been an incredible partner to us as we have taken St. Francis College global.  The linkages that Charles and his team have arranged for us with colleges and universities in various parts of Europe have been wide-ranging and aligned with our comprehensive internationalization strategy. The care, attention, and follow-up that Cormack exhibits are unmatched and highly professional. Every possible model of international collaboration, some quite innovative, are introduced by Cormack.

Cormack Consultancy has consistently brought us innovative and interesting opportunities in markets that have not traditionally been a focus for St. John’s.  The Cormack team is knowledgeable, responsive, and it has been both a pleasure and an education to work with them over the last year.

Mercy College – Manhattan

CCG is exactly what Mercy needs as we work to further internationalize our campus and our academic offerings. Charles and his team at CCG demonstrate professional knowledge, broad expertise, and creative solutions in these uncertain times – and they are also fun to work with. The relationships we have built through CCG have been critical in determining the path for our international initiatives including exchange programs, short-term workshops and seminars, and partnerships

Working with Charles and his associates has been one of the very best experiences I have had in international cooperation and partnerships. They are savvy, collegial, well-informed, and, above all, organized in a very thoughtful manner!

University of Brighton

We were building a strategy to deliver income growth from TNE for the University and needed some external expert guidance as the University was starting almost from scratch with TNE with very limited provision.  We contracted Cormack Consulting to support us in developing a growth strategy.  Aziz worked with us on this spending a few really valuable days at the University consulting with various stakeholders, mapping out existing processes and experience to date.  One of Aziz’s standout qualities was to be able to understand the detail of processes and unpick those with administrative colleagues but also to be able to talk confidently with University senior management, comfortably discussing TNE and demonstrating a depth of knowledge that won their confidence in him and as a result in the subsequent strategic proposals that we developed.  Aziz is fantastic to work with and a true expert in his field – I couldn’t recommend him highly enough.
