Holzer, Harry J.; Baum, Sandy – Brookings Institution Press, 2017
Too many disadvantaged college students in America do not complete their coursework with any college credential, while others earn degrees or certificates with little labor market value. Large numbers of these students also struggle to pay for college, and some incur debts that they have difficulty repaying. The authors provide a new review of the…

Robertson, Susan L.; Komljenovic, Janja – Oxford Review of Education, 2016
This paper examines the growth of global non-state and multilateral actors in the "global south" and the creation of frontier markets in the higher education sector. These developments are part of market-making changes in higher education as the sector is opened to new actors, logics, and innovative services, aimed at "the global…

Wilkins, Stephen – Studies in Higher Education, 2017
The establishment of an international branch campus can impact upon a diverse range of stakeholders in both home and host countries. Many of the arguments against international branch campuses are based on ethical issues, such as the lack of academic freedom and civil liberties in host countries. Ignoring ethical issues may deny institutions the…

Eide, Stephen – Education Next, 2018
Small mid-tier private schools tend to have modest endowments, and after decades of tuition hikes comparable to those of their elite peers, they are now at high risk of pricing themselves out of the market. The fiscal crisis of small private colleges will play out differently across the nation. States vary in their demographic projections and the…

Litwin, Jeffrey M. – Higher Education Management and Policy, 2009
Viewed through a market paradigm, universities can appear as the aggregation of numerous and varied markets. While universities' primary markets focus on teaching and research, they are active in many other markets, most of which support and contribute to their smooth, effective and efficient operation. Using financial and real estate markets as…

Arbeit, Caren A.; Horn, Laura – National Center for Education Statistics, 2017
In 2012, more than 13 percent of undergraduates attended for-profit postsecondary institutions, up from 9 percent in 2009. The rapid growth of the for-profit sector has renewed public scrutiny and concern about the historically poor labor market outcomes of students at many of these institutions and the amount of debt students in these…

Scott-Clayton, Judith – Center on Children and Families at Brookings, 2017
The Federal Work-Study program was introduced as part of the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964, with the goal of enabling low-income students to work their way through college. It is thus one of the earliest forms of federal financial aid for college, pre-dating both Pell Grants and Stafford Loans. Since its inception, FWS has provided institutions…

Educational authorities in Taiwan have been expanding the higher education sector since the 1990s to meet the demands of economic transformation and to meet cultural expectations.

Belmont, David – Commonfund Institute, 2012
The recent flow of headlines excoriating bankers and financiers for malfeasance, fraud, and collusion has been almost biblical in proportion. Counterparties that appeared creditworthy based on financial statements and ratings have revealed that they are impaired either due to computer errors, control failures, malfeasance, or potential regulatory…

Edgecombe, Nikki; Sanders, Jasmine M. – Center for Analysis of Postsecondary Education and Employment, 2018
Scholarship on minority-serving institutions (MSIs) has established the critical role they play in spite of significant financial constraints. At the same time, descriptive statistical analyses have also found that MSIs, as a group, have lower completion rates than the national average. More research is thus needed on the factors underlying the…

This paper examines the rise in student loan default and delinquency. It draws on a unique set of administrative data on federal student borrowing matched to earnings records from de-identified tax records. Most of the increase in default is associated with borrowers at for-profit schools, 2-year institutions, and certain other nonselective…

Brown, Jeffrey R.; Dimmock, Stephen G.; Weisbenner, Scott – National Bureau of Economic Research, 2012
Charitable donations are an important revenue source for many institutions of higher education. We explore how donations respond to economic and financial market shocks, accounting for both supply and demand channels through which these shocks operate. In panel data with fixed effects to control for unobservable differences across universities, we…

Howarth, Jason Paul; D'Alessandro, Steven; Johnson, Lester; White, Lesley – International Journal of Lifelong Education, 2016
Despite the widespread adoption of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), no business model has emerged to make them sustainable from an institution standpoint. Using MOOCs as a marketing platform shows promise; but for this to succeed, it is necessary to understand the motivations of those who undertake them and to demonstrate how these same…
