Global Innovation in Higher Education and Workforce Development

February 7, 2018

In today’s rapid changing world, no industry is immune from the disruption caused by technological innovation. In higher education, one of Maryland’s largest industries, companies and institutions must meet higher demands at lower costs in an increasingly crowded market place. They adapt through economies of scale, leveraging advanced data analytics to create more personalized and relevant products for their customers. The higher education paradigm is changing with MOOCs, Micro Certifications, experiential education and other innovations upsetting the traditional models of higher education. At this session, leaders from the non-profit and for-profit side of higher education will discuss how they are facing these and other challenges and the innovations they are employing to stay one step ahead of the competition.
