Huron Consulting Group PeopleSoft Campus Solutions Developer in Chicago, Illinois

The Opportunity:

Huron helps its clients drive growth, enhance performance and sustain leadership in the markets they serve. We partner with higher education organizations to develop strategies and implement solutions that enable the transformative change our clients need to own their future. Together, we empower clients to drive innovation, create sustainable funding streams and deliver better student outcomes.

Today, leaders of higher education institutions and academic medical centers are spending too much time reacting to market forces, rather than focusing on the essential priorities that help students, faculty and staff thrive. The most productive path forward requires an intentional approach and innovative thinking, whereby stakeholders across the entire institution rally around a shared vision and embrace the hard work of effecting change.

You’ll help our clients create their future business and technology strategy, attract, retain and graduate students, decrease operating expenses and increase revenue, optimize research operations and improve employee satisfaction, financial management, operational and organizational effectiveness, research administration, and regulatory compliance.

Join our team as the expert you are now and create your future.

Position Summary:

To succeed in a competitive environment, colleges and universities must improve the student experience. Huron supports institutions with coordinated, scalable, strategic, student-centric approaches. We partner with clients to bring their student vision to life, using modern technologies that support effective recruitment and financial aid strategies, enrolled student experience tracking, referral integration and support interventions, and university advancement strategies. Improving the student experience requires a holistic approach, including the effective implementation and adoption of a unified cloud-based technology system. Huron’s comprehensive planning, implementation and post-production support services help institutions create a more seamless, personalized student experience.
