For-Profit Higher Education Sees Booming Enrollments and Revenues.
Strosnider, Kim
Chronicle of Higher Education, v44 n20 pA36-A38 Jan 23 1998
In about five years, postsecondary proprietary education has grown from a sleepy sector, best known for trade schools, to a $3.5-billion-a-year business increasingly dominated by companies building regional and national franchises. Shares of a dozen higher-education companies are traded on major stock exchanges. However, some are considered small-capitalization stocks, trading is risky, and regulation restricts expansion. (MSE)
