Episode 15 - Advantages of Responding Quickly in Higher Education

When it comes to colleges and universities, the rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer, and some schools are their own worst enemies. Larry Ladd knows this all too well with his over 40 years of experience as a financial executive in higher education. In this episode, Dr. Jason Altmire talks with Larry about how for-profit institutions quickly respond to the market while non-profits are often slower.
Student enrollment numbers are staying stable, but the number of for-profit schools has dropped. Larry and Dr. Altmire explore this phenomenon and other current trends in higher education. They also discuss hurdles the non-profit sector must address to remain relevant, the future of online learning and its implications for higher education.
