Our research programme explores all topics related to student living and talent attraction within today’s dynamic urban landscape. We look at the internationalisation of education as a driving force for city- university cooperation that can ultimately promote social and economic development. As such, we explore the roles of our communities and how they can, together, provide the right environments and resources for students and young professionals to thrive.
Our community of partners is truly international and gathers three different communities: real estate, city leadership, and higher education. The diversity of our partners increases the impact of our community and helps us achieve our missions to exchange best practices, research trends, and shape the future of student living.
Attraction and retention of young talent is vital to the internationalisation of higher education, and ultimately to create competitive cities. With dedicated consulting services, The Class helps higher education institutions, cities, economic boards. and private partners to shape the future global talent hubs.
