5 Things Universities Want From OPM Providers

By Joshua Kim, Inside Higher Ed

What do universities want from online program management providers? I have no idea. Ask me what I want in a potential OPM partner, and I’ll talk your ear off. But search for any research on how universities evaluate the decision to partner with a for-profit company to build, market, launch and run a new online degree program — and you will be mostly searching in vain. The growing phenomenon of nonprofit/for-profit partnerships in postsecondary online learning needs research attention. We need to move OPM analysis out of the world of for-profit consulting companies and higher ed blogs. We need to investigate the changing way in which higher education programs are financed, including the OPM partnership model, involving scholars who are committed to independent and sustained research.
