2U wants online program managers (OPMs) to be more transparent about the nature of their relationships with colleges and universities, and it’s leading the charge.┬áThat’s according to a six-part framework it announced Wednesday calling on its competitors to join it in pulling back the curtain on how they work with institutions to deliver online programs. Among the items it wants to share are who OPMs’ customers are, how they set tuition prices, and their student outcomes such as retention and graduation rates.┬áThat move isn’t too big of a jump for a company that is publicly traded and has made a habit of disclosing certain measures and outcomes in the past, analysts say.
