Webinar On-Demand: Future of Education | Views from the Top – East vs. West

As COVID-19 has been one of the biggest catalysts for change within higher education, please join us as we speak with leaders of top higher-ed institutions across the US and Asia to learn how they are thinking about the future of higher education. 

Experts like Professor Scott Galloway are predicting that 20-30% of universities will close down if they can't adapt and change. We will be discussing questions including:

  • What will the future of higher education look like? 
  • What is the role of technology to help institutions not only survive but thrive in this new environment? 
  • How can educational institutions adapt quickly enough? 
  • What capabilities are needed? 
  • Is it all bad? What benefits and positive outcomes are you seeing?
