Today, colleges and universities can access an unprecedented amount of information about the jobs learners want and the skills employers need. But applying this data effectively requires a clear vision for the why, how, and what of labor market analytics in higher education. To help provide this vision, Emsi hosted a webinar led by chief innovation officer Rob Sentz. Rob shared how institutions can and should use data about the economy and their alumni to improve their value and relevance in 2020 and beyond. Check out the recap to see a recording of the webinar and links to relevant research!
