Franchising for higher education

In most schools and colleges franchising is briefly mentioned in business studies but is rarely a topic of focus. In higher education, however, franchising starts to become recognised as one of the key business development models to be considered, but it is still largely misunderstood.

There are just a handful of universities in the UK that have an in-depth understanding of franchising through on-going studies. In most cases academics will turn to the British Franchise Association for guidance and information.

The bfa can provide various industry statistics, access to suitable publications, published articles and general resources. The Association also lists full details of all accredited franchises and expert advisors in the UK for use as case studies or for interview.

The information below provides a starting point for understanding franchising. For any other information please contact us.
