This session focuses on opportunities for revenue diversification and new program offerings, as colleges and universities seek to leverage their reputation, reimagine utilization of their assets, and expand their program offerings to respond to new needs or emerging fields of study or to reach nontraditional audiences.
Administrative and curriculum redesign will be the focus of this session, with conversation focused on strategies to improve efficiencies, identify cost-sharing opportunities, and seek partners to improve both course content and the range of modalities through which it is offered.
This session will look at affiliation options through the perspectives of organizations seeking to merge or divest their holdings, and organizations seeking new opportunities through acquisition. Topics will include possible affiliation models, cultural considerations, and other factors that influence the success of an affiliation.
As institutions turn their future vision into reality, they will need a toolbox that includes integrated strategic and financial planning, treasury and capital management, administrative assessment and design, academic product mix planning, and communications.
Regardless of the strategy an institution pursues, its leadership will have to cultivate and support capabilities in transparency, collaboration, alignment, and flexibility. This session focuses on tactics to build these capabilities and their central role in managing change within the institution.
