Digital for Tertiary Education Program (D4TEP)

Digitalization is no longer an option in higher education. It is a necessity.

To stay competitive in today’s fast-changing global environment, universities must digitize key aspects of their admissions, instruction, and administration processes. This requires building effective new delivery models, including blended and online formats, and adapting proven technology solutions and platforms to each university’s specific needs, creating smoother operations and stronger experiences that increase student satisfaction.

Getting this right can be difficult.

This is the role of IFC’s Digital for Tertiary Education Program (D4TEP). Designed with the global pandemic and post-pandemic business and academic environment in mind, it helps universities move ahead on this essential journey, building strategies for long-term success. Combining the sharing of global best practices, the development of a framework for decision-making, and the identification of opportunities for potential financing, D4TEP is a customized, integrated solution with one goal: helping universities thrive in a digital world. The program provides a customized suite of tools to develop a digital transformation strategy and roadmap: from learning how to integrate systems and automate back-office processes, to enriching the digital educational experience of students, and more.

How it Works

D4TEP helps higher education institutions to:

  • DISCOVER their key unmet needs for digitalization
  • STRATEGIZE about the necessary new capabilities and identify new content and technology partners
  • PLAN a high-level roadmap based on the emerging vision
