High marks: Scrutiny will rise, but new markets and online classes will support growth
For-Profit Universities in the US
Making the grade
While the industry has been under increasing scrutiny in recent years due to questionable recruiting and marketing practices and lax admissions standards, revenue continues to grow. The high number of high school graduates has left traditional colleges at capacity, and still-high unemployment rates have encouraged nontraditional students to attend courses. All of these trends will continue in the next five years, but increased regulation will slow the pace of growth.
This industry includes universities and colleges that offer academic courses at baccalaureate or graduate levels, on a for-profit basis. Admission requirement is a high school diploma or equivalent general academic training. Instruction
may be provided in a variety of settings, such as educational institutions, the workplace or the home, and through correspondence, TV, the internet or other means.
