Help expand our suite of top-tier offerings
Are you ready to build a product line from the ground up? Eager to use your MBA for something other than investment banking or traditional consulting? We have the role for you.
Our New Product Development team may be staffed by dynamic, charismatic businessmen and women, but one staffer lamented she could never find a chess partner—her group is infamous for always thinking five moves ahead.
We probably don't need the next Gary Kasparov, but we do need more strategists who can game out solutions in the boardroom and across product lines. Team players who have the long-term vision to transform our business, but with enough short-term focus to meet the bottom line.
A Job for the Business-Savvy Strategist
New Product Development occupies a unique role at the Advisory Board, so we're seeking truly unique self-starters with their own rare combination of skills: Researcher, analyst, and even entrepreneur.
As a New Product Development staff member, from Analyst to Principal level, your task is to identify business opportunities, conduct due diligence, and eventually take a product to market. Some are created in-house organically, like our Education division. Others are built from valued acquisitions, like our 2008 purchase of Crimson. But in all cases, these products must ensure that our members are served and our business stays competitive.
The New Product Development team has the feel of a start-up, without all the risk. It’s like starting your own business, but with the resources and backing of a company that has a 30-year-plus track record of success.
What We Look For
We're hunting for corporate strategists who want to make a real impact for some of the nation's most important employers.
Our best New Product Development staff have world-class communication, judgment, and problem-solving skills. They can pivot in the moment—translating an Excel document into an impromptu presentation for executives—or thrive when spending weeks diving into new business opportunities.
At the end of the day, we need entrepreneurs who can help expand the Advisory Board Company’s portfolio—and achieve real change in the health care and higher education industries.
