Neagheen Homaifar, The Parthenon Group

Neagheen Homaifar’s efforts in Parthenon’s Boston office are anchored in solving public and private sector challenges in education.  She has worked with foundations to support K-12 and postsecondary investment strategies in technology and has also worked with state and district management to develop turnaround strategies for low-performing schools.  Neagheen’s private sector experience has spanned early childhood education in the United States to university expansion in Central America. While she focuses on education-related work, Parthenon’s two-case model has allowed her to simultaneously explore the firm’s more traditional corporate client work.  From business planning cases to growth optimization cases for automobile transmission and fire safety equipment companies, Neagheen has learned to appreciate the less glamorous products in life.    She graduated with Honors from Harvard College where she earned an A.B. in Social Studies and a Certificate in Latin American Studies.  In her academic tenure, Neagheen conducted ethnographic research in rural Latin America focusing on microfinance communities, gender empowerment, and children’s access to education.
