THE Open University’s former director Rajay Naik has been appointed as chief commercial officer at Study Group, a provider of international education.
He was one of five members of a landmark review of UK higher education chaired by Lord Browne.
Naik was also previously Keypath Education’s European CEO and helped lead the expansion of the company’s online degree programmes on behalf of the University of Exeter, Aston University and other higher education institutions.
“Universities are increasingly looking at new forms of academic delivery and they expect private sector partners to recognise this and satisfy demand,” Naik said.
The Study Group enables students from all over the world develop the necessary study and language skills. Last year, it was involved with 60,000 students from 150 countries.
