We have now introduced a significant new service for Higher Education Institutions -  Performance Benchmarking.

Performance Benchmarking combines the following two market-leading datasets to benchmark the relationship between financial investment and student experience.

  1. Tribal Financial Benchmarking
  2. i-graduate Student Barometer (student experience survey)

This combination helps universities to optimise value-for-money by understanding the impact investment decisions have on service effectiveness, the student experience, and students’ propensity to recommend the university.

The component services will still be available separately, but the integrated service gives university leaders a powerful management tool that:

  • Combines historically siloed data
  • Helps the institution model scenarios
  • Helps improve quality, student experience and resource allocation
  • Drives positive change through better informed decisions


To discuss the scope of Performance Benchmarking and how your institution might participate, speak to one of the team at the Finance Festival, or Nick Pidgeon at BUFDG’s FD Meeting in May; or click here for further information.
