Discounted Rate for MarketDrivenEDU members to Private Equity Investing in Education-Focused Companies Conference —

edu conference

MarketDrivenEdu is pleased to announce it’s 10th annual Media sponsorship of The Capital Roundtable’s full-day conference on Private Equity Investing in Education-Focused Companies.

 

Coming up on Tuesday, January 15, 2019, in New York City, the theme of this conference is The Role for Private Capital in Bridging the Gap Between Education & Employment.

 

As a friend of MarketDrivenEdu, you qualify for a special VIP rate — $995 ($500 off the standard rate). To register, please call Kristi Paris, at 212-832-7300 ext. 0, or email her at kparis@capitalroundtable.com.

 

In this politicized age, it seems like people don’t agree on much to do with education. For instance —

  • 57% of Republicans support charter schools, versus just 36% of Democrats.
  • Only 33% of Republicans think spending on public schools in their district should be increased, versus 58% of Democrats.
  • Just 28% of Republicans believe college is worth the cost, versus 43% of Democrats.

If you’re a private investor, those stats may make you feel nervous. For instance, you may not want to invest in a for-profit college during Donald Trump’s administration, if the next president may be Elizabeth Warren and the rules may change again.

 

One path forward lies in something everyone can agree on — that the U.S. education system needs to do better at preparing people for joining the workforce.

 

Join more than 20 experts as they assess the outlook for PE investing in the education sector at this all-day conference, chaired by Daniel Pianko, co-founder & managing director at University Ventures.

At this conference, you’ll enjoy exceptional networking opportunities. The agenda includes ample time, with session breaks and a buffet lunch, to exchange ideas, swap business cards, and form new relationships.

To register, please call Kristi Paris, at 212-832-7300 ext. 0, or email her at kparis@capitalroundtable.com.   

 

Please be sure to mention MarketDrivenEdu to receive this low VIP rate. And note this rate is not available online.

Downturn in foreign student enrollment, causes pain at US Colleges and Universities

drop in foreign students effect us colleges

Just as many universities believed that the financial wreckage left by the 2008 recession was behind them, campuses across the country have been forced to make new rounds of cuts, this time brought on, in large part, by a loss of international students.

Schools in the Midwest have been particularly hard hit — many of them non-flagship public universities that had come to rely heavily on tuition from foreign students, who generally pay more than in-state students.

The downturn follows a decade of explosive growth in foreign student enrollment, which now tops 1 million at United States colleges and educational training programs, and supplies $39 billion in revenue. International enrollment began to flatten in 2016, partly because of changing conditions abroad and the increasing lure of schools in Canada, Australia and other English-speaking countries.

And since President Trump was elected, college administrators say, his rhetoric and more restrictive views on immigration have made the United States even less attractive to international students. The Trump administration is more closely scrutinizing visa applications, indefinitely banning travel from some countries and making it harder for foreign students to remain in the United States after graduation.

While government officials describe these as necessary national security measures, a number of American colleges have been casualties of the policies.

“As you lose those students, then the tuition revenue is negatively impacted as well,” said Michael Godard, the interim provost at the University of Central Missouri, where 944 international students were enrolled in the fall, a decline of more than 1,500 from the previous year. “We’ve had to make some decisions, budgetary decisions, to adjust.”

Special VIP rate for Group Members Capital Roundtable PE investing in Education conference NYC

Market Driven Edu is pleased to announce The Capital Roundtable’s full-day conference on Private Equity Investing in Education-Focused Companies.

 

Coming up on Tuesday, July 18, in New York City, the theme of this conference is Education from 2017 to 2021 — What’s Next for Investors?

 

As a friend of Market Driven Edu, you qualify for a special VIP rate — $995 ($500 off the standard rate).  To register, please call Sarah Burd, at 212-832-7300 ext. 0, or email her at sburd@capitalroundtable.com.

 

These are exciting times for private investors in education-focused companies, even amid the uncertainty about what’s going to happen next.  Despite galactic differences of opinion, everyone’s goal is to deliver great education to as many people as possible.

 

Education is facing changes and challenges in all sectors.  Pre-K is becoming professionalized, migrating away from traditional childcare to more school-based curriculums.  Public K-12 schools are lagging behind, leading to the expansion of new alternatives, such as charter schools and pri­vate schools.  Higher education costs are rising faster than inflation, financial aid isn’t keeping up, and colleges need innovative solutions for keeping costs down.  And the gap is widening between the skills students are learning and the skills employers say workers need.

 

Chairing the conference is Dan Neuwirth, a general partner at Quad Partners. Dan co-founded the firm in 2000 and has led investments across its education portfolio.  Prior to Quad, he worked in investment banking and principal investing at Donaldson Lufkin & Jenrette, and at Goldman Sachs & Co.

 

Our 20 knowledgeable speakers will boost your knowledge of this attractive area through their first-hand experiences and by answering key questions. See speaker list here.

 

At this conference, you’ll enjoy exceptional networking opportunities. The agenda includes ample time, with session breaks and a buffet lunch, to exchange ideas, swap business cards, and form new relationships.

 

To register, please call Sarah Burd, at 212-832-7300 ext. 0, or email her at sburd@capitalroundtable.com.
