Economic conditions have created significant headwinds for higher education. Research revealed that financial leaders at colleges and universities expect enrollment, labor costs, and inflation to have the greatest financial impact on their institutions over the next 5-10 years.

During this panel discussion, you’ll learn how higher education finance teams are adapting strategies and processes to prepare for these headwinds, including:

  • Rethinking operational budgeting 
  • Analyzing tuition revenue and fee structures 
  • Establishing long-term financial plans 

You’ll also hear how colleges and universities use modern budgeting and planning technologies to quickly respond to shifting economic conditions and ensure long-term financial stability.
