The Future of University !

From the information’s that we collected we had the conclusion that universities in the future will be like :
Universities will be compelled to create new, leaner business as competition increases for staff, students, funding and partners.
Public institutions will increasingly be run like corporations, while seeking to maintain the freedom of inquiry and academic rig our that their long-term reputation depends on.
Private institutions will exploit profitable market niches, while others will create new markets and sources of value; for example, by specializing in select parts of the education value chain.
Policy makers will seek to maintain steady growth in access to university education. They will search for policy levers and programs that put the higher education sector at the center of a genuine knowledge economy integrated into the Asian region, while inevitably tightening the public purse strings for higher education providers.
These changes will force universities to adapt in a number of ways:

Breadth of programs — Universities will need to consider whether they can continue to maintain a competitive position — domestically and internationally — across a broad range of programs, or whether to concentrate resources on a smaller range of programs.
Target customers — Universities will need to have a clear strategy and execution around target student segments and their specific needs and preferences. Today, most universities’ segmentation is broad at best (for example — school leavers, mature age, and international). Universities that do not become more focused on segments will be exposed to competitors with targeted student propositions.
Channels to market — Universities will need to rethink the role of digital channels and third party partnerships in recruiting students and delivering teaching and research programs.
Back office — The asset base and university administration will need to be significantly leaner than it is today. Most universities at present have significantly more support staff than academic staff — this ratio will have to change.
