About Higher Education Business & Leadership: Summer Edition

The business of higher education has been turned on its head. Still coping with the lingering impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, university and college leadership are being forced to reinvent how their institutions function effectively going forward. Everything has to be examined including course curriculum, recruitment and enrollment strategies, technology implementation and training, and strategic partnerships with other institutions and associations. Students may be physically going back to campus, but the higher education business model is changed forever.

Join Fierce Education and higher education executives for the Business & Leadership: Summer Edition virtual event to learn what some university leaders are doing to alter their business models to excel in this new Education 3.0 world.
