“We have been working with PMSI for almost 10 years. We particularly appreciate their work, which is always based on a very granular data approach and allows us to understand the markets in depth. In the past, we have stopped certain acquisition processes on the basis of their projections… and a few years later have been able to measure the relevance of their analysis!” Sebastien Ferrand, Development and M&A Director, Galileo Global Education
