Home Markets Education

AEM is a recognized market leader in helping education clients improve the programs, systems, processes, and data used to advance student learning.

Institutions of higher education and federal, state, and local education agencies must constantly balance competing priorities for policy and practice. In a landscape where change is the norm, education leaders need proven and customizable solutions to improve their organizations and programs.

AEM helps education leaders solve their most complex programs, systems, processes, and data challenges. We have worked with all states and territories to assist in data collection and federal reform grant initiatives; every school district to collect data on equity; every institution for higher education that receives Title IV funding to provide customer assistance support and manage their federal student aid; and 16 program offices.

Our staff of 150 specialized subject matter experts and project management professionals collaborate with clients to meet the unique needs of each project. We provide in-depth expertise across diverse topics such as charter schools, personalized learning, data management and privacy, teacher quality, special education, arts, and early learning.

Working closely with our customers, our experts leverage expertise from across the company. We apply commercial best practices to achieve performance breakthroughs by improving data management and usage, reducing the burden on the government with highly specialized technical assistance, implementing innovative information technology solutions, and evaluating program effectiveness and best practices.

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney thanks AEM executives for their local efforts to support education.
