A University Executive Lunch Briefing
Monday, April 4, 2016
11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
80 City Square, Boston, MA 02129
The business and economic models of numerous industries and organizations are undergoing tremendous change and reinvention. From Amazon to Uber, new models are transforming industry landscapes.
But what do such forces and changes mean for higher education?
Colleges and universities-long viewed as largely insulated from drastic change or industry shifts-increasingly face a world of fast-moving, technology-fueled forces that are altering the value propositions and value-creation chain of higher education.
Whereas institutions used to “do it all,” new entrants and service providers that offer reconfigured credentials, outsourcing options for academic and administrative functions and revenue-generating partnerships are changing the way higher education’s business gets done.
What does the future hold? What implications do these changes portend for the fundamental economic models upon which many higher education institutions are premised? What new revenue-generating opportunities do these dynamic institutions present? And given the changes underway, what will competitive, sustainable college and university economic models of the future look like?
Jointly hosted by RSM and The New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE), this executive lunch briefing for senior higher education executives and board leaders will focus on helping colleges and universities develop greater understanding of their respective business/economic models and of possible changes, alternatives and strategic responses.
