While much remains uncertain about the long-term economic impacts of COVID-19, we can be confident that colleges and universities will have a crucial role to play in their community’s resilience and recovery. But, like the students they serve, institutions must also adjust to new economic realities. In particular, there will be a need for programs that align with emerging needs in the labor market, teach in-demand skills, and help new students or re-engaged alumni make successful career pivots.
To help colleges and universities think about how to prepare for the opportunities ahead, Emsi hosted a webinar with Luke Jankovic (EVP of Higher Education) and Dr. Stuart Muller (Sr. Higher Education Consultant).
