Online Education expected to continue it’s growth in 2019

edufficient advertising for online education

 

The number of students who were enrolled exclusively online grew to 15.4 percent  which is up from 14.7 percent in 2016, or about one in six students. The percentage of all students who combined online and in-person courses grew faster, to 17.6 percent in 2017 from 16.4 percent in 2016.  The percentage of students who took at least one course online grew to 33.1 percent, from 31.1 percent in 2016.  Online education continues to prove it’s not only here to stay but growing.

With traditional non profit institutions, OPM’s & for-profits continuing to cater to this growing market it’s clear that there is a lot of opportunity ahead.  Most of the traditional non profits who succeed are generally partnering with OPM’s like 2U or OPM alternative facilitators like Edufficient.  Those who try it alone continue to have a high failure rate.

Inc. Magazine Unveils 35th Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 500/5000

 

Edufficient Ranks No. 58 on the 2016 Inc. 500, 3rd fastest growing company in NJ

with Three-Year Sales Growth of 4,579%

 

NEW YORK, August 17, 2016Inc. magazine today ranked Edufficient, located in Paramus New Jersey as NO. 58 on its 35th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.

 

“Our rapid growth is a testament to the quality and experience of our management team & dedicated staff, our consistent growth is dependent on our ability to help our clients grow.” Said Tom Ferrara CEO of Edufficient.

 

The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 23) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.

 

“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”

 

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 18 through 20, in San Antonio, TX. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as best-selling author and strategist Tony Robbins, SoulCycle co-founders Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice, Cornerstone OnDemand founder, president and CEO Adam Miller, Marvell Technology Group director and co-founder Weili Dai, and New Belgium Brewing co-founder and executive chair Kim Jordan.

 

Edufficient is an industry leading results-driven Interactive advertising agency specializing exclusively in higher education. Our objective is to facilitate long-term sustainable growth for colleges and universities through intelligent media buying, stringent compliance, detailed vendor management, innovative technology, drill down analytics, progressive methodology and dedicated account management.  By serving as an extension of a client’s internal marketing team, we share their enrollment and start objectives and work hand in hand with them to achieve their budgeted short and long term goals.
