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. A high school diploma or equivalent general academic training is an admission requirement. Instruction may be provided in a variety of settings, such as educational institutions, the workplace or the home, training facilities and through correspondence, TV, the internet or other means.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
