Gain a clear vision of the academic programs that are economic engines.
Gain the tools and skills you need to analyze academic program cost and demand. During this three-day training, you will learn the basis for building your own cost and demand model so you can better:
With these data and calculations in-hand, you will be able to have more productive conversations about where and how best to allocate limited academic resources.
This conference is an active learning opportunity for you and your colleagues. You will focus on the process of actually making cost and demand calculations and examine how you can use that data to inform and communicate strategic decisions.
Upon registration for this program you will be asked to complete a survey so we can learn more about your specific questions and needs. You will also be provided a template to complete with your institutional data that will help you contextualize the concepts and working session activities.
This pre-conference workshop is designed for institutions and deans who are new to or will be shifting to a decentralized budget model. This is your opportunity to get your decentralized budget questions answered and ensure that you are comfortable with your model as you enter the program analysis process.
This training is highly recommended for new deans and academic program leaders who need better tools to collect and communicate data related to academic program cost and demand. This training is ideal if you are in the early stages of determining your program costs or want to understand how new programs impact your campus and need help building your own model as both a learning exercise and a tangible resource for your institution. If any of the latter are true for you, this training is an opportunity for you to get a detailed and hands-on experience in those categories.
Along with academic program leaders, financial analysts, business officers and institutional researchers who are looking to support their academic team in program cost and demand analysis may come to better understand their “client” needs and work together on building the cost model.
When you register two people from your institution, a third can attend for 50% off!
