Predictions abound at the beginning of a new year, and Encoura’s Eduventures chief research officer, Richard Garrett, has weighed in with three of his own for 2019.¬†First, Garrett said he expects “at least five more R1 universities” to introduce low-priced online master’s degrees, akin to Georgia Tech’s master’s in analytics ($9,900) or the University of Texas at Austin’s master’s in computer science ($10,000). While these programs traditionally have emphasized the MBA, data science and cybersecurity, the new breed of graduate study will focus on fields such as healthcare management and accounting, he said. These programs will be characterized by the “same admission standards, same rigor, same faculty,” but the schools will emphasize “mass enrollment at a low price.”
