College leaders not confident they can beat new competition

“The majority (86%) of higher ed leaders surveyed expect competition to intensify. While about three-fourths (77%) are worried about existing competitors increasing their market share, about half (52%) expressed concern that national universities will scale into their territory. And one-third (34%) expect competition from startups and alternative education companies.  Private college leaders were warier than their public college counterparts of increasing competition for students and the decline of the traditional-age student population.”
