Expressing confidence in Sri Lanka, Massey University, New Zealand’s leading university – with 35,000 domestic students and over 18,000 students offshore/worldwide, has appointed MTI Consulting to facilitate the market entry process.

“Sri Lanka, with a fast growing economy and as a gateway to South Asia, has been identified as a key potential opportunity for Massey’s higher educational and executive education offerings. Given Massey’s experience in Asia and its wide offerings, can help Sri Lanka in developing the country’s core managerial and technical skills,” said Rob Stevens who is the General Manager, Massey University Worldwide and the Chief Executive, Massey Global Ltd.

Massey’s Distance Learning Programs has benefited over 250,000 worldwide in business, creative arts, health, humanities and social sciences and sciences.

Massey currently has formal international agreements with more than 200 institutions worldwide which includes foundation programs, pathway programs, undergraduate and postgraduate programs, home-government scholarships, study abroad and student and staff exchange relationships, transnational online and blended education delivery and research collaborations. Currently international pathway programs are available in China, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand.

In Sri Lanka Massey is exploring three delivery routes i.e. face-to-face via fly in and fly out teaching, fully online and a blend of both face-to-face and online.

Massey has a number of successful business models around the world, which it wishes to replicate in markets like Sri Lanka, starting in a modular manner. MTI Consulting, an internationally networked boutique management consultancy, is Sri Lanka’s leading strategy consultancy, enabling several multi-national institutions to enter Sri Lanka.
