The profit motive has led to so many innovations in higher education. So, why are we uncomfortable talking about it?
On the 7th episode of the Skill Podcast, Micah shares a conversation with Trace Urdan, Managing Director at Tyton Partners, a global investment bank and management consulting firm serving the global knowledge market.
Trace and Micah discuss the profit motive in higher education, a topic which is approached with hesitation and even disdain in many parts of the industry despite the fact that it has driven many of today's innovations in higher ed, including: Income Share Agreements (ISAs), bootcamps, and online education models serving adult workers.
It's time for higher education to rethink its discomfort with the profit motive.
