Your Asia Solutions

Global Education Alliance (GEA) is an overseas education consultancy services provider operating on a business-to-school model. We provide a platform for overseas education providers in our network to meet and interact with our channel partners.

Our Mission

Navigating through the Asian education market and bringing our overseas partners to shores!

Our Vision

Asia is undoubtedly the most sought-after market both in terms of population and consuming power; however, major cities have become saturated. Growth can only be achieved by expanding the sales network and reaching out to potential customers in smaller cities.
Traditional recruitment channel partners operate in big cities and they are exhausted competing against one another in maintaining their market shares. Their business models are not designed for going down the road less traveled and expanding the market size.
The GEA vision is to stimulate growth and penetrate into untapped markets by building a network of supply and demand and bridging all necessary steps in between.

IT Support / Intelligent Institution Selection System

The Intelligent Institution Selection System developed by GEA has built a platform for consultants and partners. Its design is based on web service. It provides personalized institution selection services for users with different needs for overseas study through data analysis. It gathers basic information of GEA’s global partner institutions. Just enter some basic information of studying abroad to match the institution database with one click so as to obtain comprehensive and accurate institution information. Personalized and intelligent use makes institution selection become faster, more efficient and more convenient!
