SUMS Consulting works for universities and is owned by universities.

We are a not-for-profit membership organisation providing expert consultancy to the higher education sector.

SUMS Consulting combines independence and impartiality with our overall mission to work in partnership with our members.  We thrive on complex problem solving and deliver tangible added value.

Our consulting staff understand the higher education sector, its unique business model and the challenges it faces.  At the same time, we offer a depth of experience and skills gained outside the sector from a variety of commercial, professional and industrial backgrounds.  This combined expertise helps us connect strategy to operations to make sure our recommendations have impact and can be implemented successfully.

SUMS helps universities ensure they’re fit for the future. To learn more about our areas of work and how we could help your university please take a look through our 2022/23 review below.
