[Strategy] Continuing Ed Is the Nimble, Revenue-Focused Department the Institution Can Rely On
We suspect that many learning businesses outside of the higher education world aren’t fully tuned in to the transformation that PCO (professional, continuing, and online) education units have undergone. They have become revenue engines and strategic powerhouses for many colleges and universities and their evolution is significantly impacting the learning business landscape.

This is a good one to share with colleagues.
