This webinar brings together global thought leaders in the field of post-secondary education to discuss new trends that are shaping the future of universities. These trends include micro-credentialing, the use of big data and analytics, an emphasis on digitalization, a greater focus on general competencies to prepare students for the Future of Work, strengthened links to the “last mile” and employability, and the unbundling of the post-secondary education value-chain, among many other topics. Speakers will also present new models that might be redefining the future role of universities in a changing context such as Nano degrees, Bootcamps, and Online Program Management providers (OPMs) as well as share their perspectives on new university priorities such as technology-enabled marketing and enrollment management to support admissions.

This webinar presents cutting edge practices from leading higher education markets such as the US and is a must-watch for global education leaders willing to take their organizations to new levels through innovation and greater use of technology.
