With budget shortfalls and increased competition for students, University Presidents face the challenging task of making education affordable for students whilst trying to manage escalating costs. Many institutions have seen their funding slashed, forcing them to rely more heavily on enrollments as investments. It is essential for Presidents and Chancellors to increase growth and funding in order to remain financially healthy.
The primary objective of the University CXO Summit is to explore the key aspects and issues related to best practices in higher education and their application as business drivers for innovation and growth.
