In era of fiscal concern, colleges look to new degree programs to boost bottom lines - Jarrett Carter, Education Dive

Georgia Tech is among hundreds of schools looking to attract more students and invite more private support through the establishment of new academic offerings. This week, the university announced plans for a fall launch of a new online master’s degree program in analytics, its second computer science-based distance learning program that will be offered for less than $10,000 developed in the last two years. Officials called the program a strategic effort to boost opportunities for working professionals and to meet the nation’s objectives in STEM advancement. “It is a national imperative for universities to offer high-quality degree programs at an affordable price and Georgia Tech has developed a model that delivers the rigor of the campus curriculum to online students worldwide,” said Gary S. May, dean of the College of Engineering and Southern Company Chair, said in a release. http://www.educationdive.com/news/in-era-of-fiscal-concern-colleges-look-to-new-degree-programs-to-boost-bot/433948/
