The Evaluation of Institutions and Analysis of the Job Training and Student Market, 1980-1985, for the Competitive Survival of the North Carolina Business Schools.
Wire, Donald R.
In the face of a decline in the number of proprietary business colleges in North Carolina, a study was conducted to identify projected business training demands for 1980-1985 in six regions within North Carolina; to identify the resultant curricular needs in the areas of marketing, retailing, business administration, accounting, and secretarial stenography; and to evaluate the capabilities of each of the 19 proprietary business colleges in the state to meet these training needs and to successfully compete with community colleges and technical institutes. The study involved: (1) a review of the literature concerning the history and characteristics of proprietary schools; (2) a survey of proprietary college presidents to determine their attitudes toward the future of private business education and to update catalog information on curricula, scheduling, and planning efforts; (3) a determination of future training demands through the projection model developed for North Carolina by Cruze; and (4) a comparison of these demands to the enrollment and graduate supply patterns established by proprietary colleges and competing two-year institutions. The study report summarizes findings, examines the competitive status of the proprietary colleges in each of the regions studied, and outlines summary recommendations. A bibliography and the questionnaire are appended. (JP)
