Planning Types: Resource Planning

The external environment confronting colleges and universities continues to rapidly evolve, driven by lingering effects of the pandemic, changing demographics and student preferences, a complex governmental funding environment, and exposure to a broad array of macroeconomic conditions. Moody's will discuss the financial outlook for the higher education sector over the next two years and beyond. Within that context, they will review how they assess the financial health of individual institutions, which are better situated to thrive and which may struggle, and trends in capital funding strategies.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Consider the key external factors confronting the sector, with implications for long-term planning.
  2. Analyze the financial health of a college or university, including resources available for implementing strategic plans.
  3. Understand the array of capital financing strategies, and potential credit implications of each.
