Regional Director, North America
IDP is a joint venture, half owned by Australia’s 38 universities and half owned by a private firm called Seek.com. In addition to being a partner in the IELTS exam (English proficiency), IDP has a network of over 70 field offices in 25 countries that work with local students and their families to gain admission to private high schools, ESL, vocational and university programs in Australia. Now in their 40th year, IDP has placed over a quarter of a million students into Australia to date and has become synonymous with the internationalization of Australia’s universities. IDP has decided their next area of expansion should be directed to the American market and I will be a big piece of getting this started.Over the next months, I will be overseas, understanding how the IDP network works and working with their team of talented business analysts and computer developers to outline processes and systems to bring more foreign students to the USA. Once systems are in place, I will head the American university sales operations.
