Part Two: Sept 15
Instructional Economics: Making Finance-Informed Academic Decisions
This three-part program series will help you build a strategic and sustainable program portfolio that is mission-centered, data-informed, student-centered, and focused on growth opportunities. Join one, two, or all three programs in this series.
In a competitive landscape, it is more important than ever to ensure the programs you offer align with demand in the market. We will discuss the data you need, and where to find it to evaluate market demand for academic programs, including critical data on student demand that is often overlooked. Consider how to integrate this data into a comprehensive assessment framework that also considers margins, mission, and academic quality. Finally, we will describe a data-informed decision-making process that incorporates data with judgment from key stakeholders to form consensus around program decisions.
