Forbes sums up our panel on higher education at Techonomy yesterday in Tucson. In a word, the gap between well established, traditional universities and up-and-coming for profit players does not seem to be narrowing. Most of my colleagues on the traditional side, especially those with healthy endowments and selectivity ratios, believe things are fine, thank you, and are focusing and how to further improve their offerings for the small number of students they serve. Meanwhile for profits continue to explore ways to drive scale without sacrificing quality. If (or when) for profits figure out a way to strengthen their brands, traditional universities which do not act, are up for an interesting shake up.
