Helping Higher Education

Colleges and universities face a number of challenges in today’s environment, including combating declining enrollment and increased competition with trade opportunities. In the higher education industry, the demand for graduate courses is expected to increase as individuals return to school when the labor market is weak. As a result of COVID-19, institutions will need to implement online education programs to keep costs low and meet the needs of an entirely different population. Additionally, budget shortfalls and enrollment issues have many institutions considering collaborations, mergers, and affiliations.
