The founding team at I-Excel incorporated it in 2010. They include YejideAkiode, its CEO and Chief Consultant, and OluwatoyinAkiode, who serves as Director of Student Services. In just over a decade, they, along with other members of the team, have built the company into a recognized name in the education consulting space.

It helps prospective undergraduates make decisions about what institutions of higher learning they should secure a place in. This service is available for universities in the United Kingdom, United States, Canada and Ghana, as well as within Nigeria.

I-Excel also helps students with their visa applications and enables them to secure study permits. They work with clients to properly fill out their forms and guide them through documentation processes and checklists so that they’ll stand a good chance of succeeding with their applications.

The company shares information with prospective international students that could help them get a place in their preferred university. It engages their parents and guardians as well so that they’re up to speed with the whole process of application, acceptance, and travel planning.
