Leeds Equity Partners has taken a 25% stake in student exchange company INTO University Partnerships for £66 million ($105.8 million). The Brighton, U.K.-based company partners with universities around the world to increase student capacity, drive additional revenue and support greater international student mobility. Since its 2005 founding, INTO has developed 16 university partnerships in the U.K., U.S. and Asia. In an era of high demand for higher education and declining public funding, Leeds sees an opportunity for companies like INTO to help universities network and partner with one another.
