Initial Selection Criteria for an International Partners

There are several factors we consider when researching new partner opportunities. Assuming the market opportunity is of sufficient size and the stability of the region is well established, there are three main areas we look at when considering a new partner.

  • Education Experience: knowledge of and experience in the education field is crucial. This experience can be anything from teaching to working in a school (public or private) to educational book publishing. Knowledge of the education market in the specific territory is a must.
  • Financial Backing: having the capital to invest in this business and effectively market is important for success. While The Princeton Review is a powerful brand in the US, it may not carry the same cache in other parts of the world and full-scale investment to establish and grow the business is essential.
  • Owner Operators: successful international partners are ones who are intimately involved in the day-to-day running of the business.

In order to gauge the quality of your candidacy, we require information in each of these categories. Before anyone officially applies for partnership, we work with each potential candidate to measure the likelihood of acceptance.


International Partnership Application

If after favorable initial review all parties agree to proceed, a detailed business plan and full financials are required. TPR will also provide a draft agreement for evaluation. There is no specific timeline for this process, except to say that we will take the necessary time to carefully consider the partner and likelihood for success.
