The economic model of a college or university and its financial sustainability are the results of decisions made about its mission, structure, strengths, and resources—the products of all the organization’s activities and functions and inputs and outputs. As institutions consider their economic models, data analytics can help you ask the right questions and arrive at the answers that support decision making and institutional planning. In this hands-on session, you will use a case study to consider how analytics can support financial sustainability.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand components of the college and university economic model
  • Consider the importance of establishing a data-informed campus culture
  • Identify critical questions that support strategic planning and can be answered using analytics
