Illinois Will End Residential M.B.A. in Favor of Online Program

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Tue, 2019-05-28 02:11

By Scott Jaschik, Inside Higher Ed

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign announced Friday that it plans to shut down its residential M.B.A. programs — full-time and part-time — to focus on its online M.B.A., which it calls the iMBA. The move still requires formal university approval, but the announcement is a sign of the shift going on in business education — in many cases away from traditional M.B.A. programs. Several universities have scaled back or eliminated such programs and focused instead on online or one-year master’s programs in business-related fields. Applications to the iMBA program have tripled from 1,100 when the program started in 2016. The total cost for the iMBA is $22,000.

And then there’s Penn State World Campus.

World Campus isn’t known for splashy ad campaigns like the $100-million-a-year one planned to promote the soon-to-be-renamed University of Maryland-Global. (World Campus did just produce a new TV commercial, but that will run for the next two to three years.) And it hasn’t landed in the headlines, like Arizona State University, for high-profile partnerships with employers like Uber or Starbucks.  The institution has also bypassed the “hyper-growth” strategy of some competitors. And now it pretty much ignores what was once an ambitious growth goal of its own. (In 2014 it had plans to more than triple its enrollment, to 45,000, in a decade. Total enrollment today is about 20,000.)

Nearly two-thirds of employees will independently find training opportunities to advance or maintain their skills this year, according to a new report by staffing firm Randstad.  Forty-three percent of respondents to the group’s survey said they will look for ways to further their technical skills in areas such as data analysis, coding, writing and computer programming. Some 41%, want to improve soft skills like communication, problem-solving, conflict resolution, leadership and time management. Of the respondents who do not intend to seek training opportunities, 22% cited lack of funds and 36% a lack of time as explanations.

Everyone Wants to Measure the Value of College. Now the Gates Foundation Wants a Say.

The Commission on the Value of Postsecondary Education is the latest national effort to measure and seek to convey clearly just how much someone gains — economically, anyway — from a college credential. The goal is to provide useful, understandable information to help colleges “take a critical look at how and how well they are contributing to economic opportunity for today’s students; aid policy makers in gauging what the public gets for its investment in higher education; and equip students and families as they consider where and what to study,” the foundation said in announcing the commission. Gates officials say the result will be more comprehensive than existing measures, like the College Scorecard, a program introduced by the Obama administration as a way to help increase transparency in higher education.

5 steps to smarter corporate partnerships

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Mon, 2019-05-27 02:04

BY MARY DAVIS, eCampus News

When it comes to higher education and corporate partnerships, it’s not a “nice to have;” it is mission-critical for colleges and universities to survive. The job market is evolving so quickly that institutions need a steady stream of information from employers on what they want and need from their workforce so curriculum and learning can reflect those needs. The key here is “partnership.” Think quality over quantity. Both sides—institutions and employers—are looking for return on investment (ROI), and these five approaches will help universities build impactful relationships with mutual benefits.

5 common hang-ups in higher ed public-private partnerships

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Mon, 2019-05-27 02:03

Chad Hardaway, Education Dive

Relationships with corporations to deliver services or assets require strong leadership and a clear plan to overcome a “fundamental cultural mismatch.” Over the last 15 years, I have worked in academia to build lasting partnerships between universities and private businesses. Along the way, I’ve seen examples of what to do and what not to do. A successful partnership brings critical investments into a university, creates opportunities for hands-on student training and builds a pipeline of future talent for the company partner. But it’s not all easy wins. Successful partnerships require strong relationships and strategic coordination. If you’re an academic aiming to bring a partnership to your own institution, I commend you for stepping up to the plate. Here are the five common missteps and how to avoid them.
