This event covers the second topic in our New Blueprint for Growth Series: The Future of Adult and Graduate Education. To register for any of the other topics, visit the event page for the Master’s Market Session or Adult Degree Completion Session.

Certificates, badges, stackable master’s degrees, and other short-format credentials appear to be a big countercyclical enrollment opportunity for universities.

To understand why, EAB took a first-of-its-kind holistic look at for-credit and noncredit graduate certificate enrollment trends, forces of supply and demand, and competition inside and outside of higher education.
