Colleges & Universities in the US
Over the five years to 2018, revenue for the Colleges and Universities industry is expected to increase. Recovering funding levels, along with enrollment and tuition increases, are projected to drive revenue growth. However, despite overall growth, the industry has been slow to recover fully from the weak economic climate in the beginning of the period. For instance, many colleges and universities have experienced lower revenue due to negative investment returns. Limited government budgets have also constrained industry growth during the period. Over the five years to 2023, demand for higher education is expected to remain strong, leading to steady industry growth. Moreover, government funding for universities is projected to rebound over the coming years, while rising levels of per capita disposable income and strong high school retention rates will push more students to enroll in colleges and universities.
This industry includes public and private universities and colleges that offer academic courses and grant baccalaureate or graduate degrees. The requirement for admission is a high school diploma or equivalent general academic training.
