Webinar: The Lumpy Market and ‘The Halo Effect’: Contracting and Expanding in ILSAs

Based on empirical research, this webinar will highlight how the ILSA market emerged and operates, the structural nature of the ILSA market, the effects of the interrelationships amongst contractors that develop, administer, and analyze ILSAs, and how the interests of the contractors shape the dynamics of the ILSA market. Finally, this webinar aims to shed light on the global business dynamics that international education accountability mechanisms have generated and help to understand how these affect education.

The webinar will take place virtually on September 22, 2021, 10.30 am CEST (UTC +2)
