Unfulfilled Prophecy: The Evolution of Corporate Colleges.
Thompson, Gordon
Journal of Higher Education, v71 n3 p322-41 May-Jun 2000
Examines the current status of "corporate colleges," accredited degree-granting institutions sponsored by corporations during the 1970s and 1980s; notes that only 5 of 26 institutions survive. Reasons for their decline include the tendency of corporations to focus attention and resources on core businesses and to "outsource" corporate education; accreditation requirements; and willingness of colleges/universities to meet corporation's educational needs.
