The Wharton Education Network (WhEN) is pleased to invite you to its next roundtable:

New business models in post-secondary education

Featuring keynote speakers: We are very fortunate to have the leaders of two young companies that are challenging paradigms in the education sector. These companies are under a strong competitive pressure themselves, and driven to keep innovating their business models. There are several areas that we will explore during our event:
  • Is the value of degrees diminishing?
  • Is a degree still an indicator of quality for company recruiters? Are there any “scalable” alternatives?
  • How can post-secondary education be more practical and job oriented?
  • How can we better prepare students for the market place?  Who is better equipped to address these needs?
  • Is there an affordability/modality challenge in boot camps?
  • How will boot camp model evolve? What can we expect in the next 5 years?
We will get insightful views to what these companies are doing, what are the new business models that are emerging, how are they reinventing themselves in a highly competitive market, and the trends that will affect the industry in the next years. Loyal to our tradition, we are dedicating most of the panel to Q&A, to leverage the keynote speakers’ experiences, and for all attendees to interact and exchange ideas on the topics.

Limited seats are available and will be assigned on a first come first serve basis.
