Brief Presentation Description
As small and medium-sized higher education institutions strive to adapt to the changing landscape of online education, collaboration with Online Program Management Companies (OPMs) has emerged as a strategic solution. OPMs offer a comprehensive suite of services encompassing market research, student recruitment and enrollment, course design and technology platforms, student retention, and placement in employment or training opportunities. This presentation aims to provide administrators with a high-level overview of the benefits, challenges, and considerations associated with partnering with OPMs through ETSU’s partnership with the Academic Partnerships OPM. By exploring this experience alongside industry trends, participants will gain valuable insights into the strategic implementation and effective utilization of OPMs to build and scale online program offerings. This session will empower administrators to make informed decisions and maximize the potential of their institutions in the rapidly evolving landscape of online education.
