The higher education industry is large and complex, but there are several trends affecting institutions of all types and sizes. These trends include soft growth in revenues from student billings, expense growth that outpaces revenue growth, volatile financial markets and standards overload. This session will be in a roundtable format and explore trends in enrollment, tuition discounting, financial modeling, and investment markets. We will incorporate the latest marketplace data presented by industry experts and best practice solutions from ABACC peers. Participants will share the impact that recent accounting standards and IRS compliance has had on the financial health of their institutions.
