About Us

Higher Education is the best investment we can make for our future. We ensure our clients give the very best return for that investment.


iMORSE was formed in 2012 by Professor Andrew Flitman, a former Acting Vice Chancellor, Deputy Vice Chancellor (Research), Dean, Head of School, Professor and senior consultant for major business advisory firms. Since that time, we have consulted to many institutions.


We help institutions transform the lives of their students, partners and community stakeholders. We achieve this by marrying best academic, research, and commercial practise.


We work on our own account, and in collaboration with partner organisations to ensure optimal delivery of client needs. We only work with the highest calibre partners.


We specify, plan, lead and manage projects that deliver strategic objectives for our clients. Our clients include public universities, existing and prospective private sector providers (RTO and HEP), regulators/government, and international market entrants.
