"We greatly appreciate the work you have done to shape our understanding of the Indian market and to identify some highly motivated and eager potential partners. The report is structured in a way that allows for a considerable depth, yet in an easy to consume structure. I know it will continue to be a valuable resource."

"My trip to India was incredibly valuable. Although I had a fair amount of knowledge about employers' views, I got far more understanding of the diversity of views regarding returning graduates and how to prepare them for their return home. The visit enabled me to increase my own labour market knowledge and grasp of the recruitment process in India. It has also opened up some opportunities for our graduates. Additionally, it was great fun!"

Our September intake has doubled in two years – from a target of 1050 two years ago to an intake sitting now at about 2280. This is due in large part to the work of Sannam S4 in India with our applicant pool, working the agent network and individual students through the application process, chasing acceptance confirmations and ensuring students have applied for their study permits. Thanks once again for all of your efforts in support of our success.

This visit (organised by Sannam S4) strengthened my understanding of the Indian MBA market, as well as my understanding of the Indian labour market for returning graduates.”

"Our career and alumni departments have tended to ‘lose track’ of the majority of our international students after they graduate. Through working with Acumen internationally, we have recognised and begun to capitalise on the value of foreign students as highly effective ambassadors for our institution."
