Outsell’s latest report, K-12 and Higher Education Markets in the Gulf States, focuses on opportunities for international players, the future of these markets, and why the Gulf States region is a fertile field for experimentation with digital-first models.


Outsell applied its proven mix of expertise and proprietary data to establish our view of this market. We conducted eight interviews with local educators and education bodies, technology vendors, and information providers both international and domestic. We supplemented this primary research with data collected from public filings, annual reports and 10-Ks, investor presentations, government and non-government statistics, and ministries of education. Where public information wasn’t available, we drew from our own informed estimates and the knowledge captured in Outsell’s Information Industry Database. Our recipe finally included a healthy dose of the unparalleled insight we gain through our daily conversations with thought leaders and executives throughout the information industry.
