Boston Business Journal - UMass online course revenue surpasses $100M

Thu, 31 Aug 2017 19:20:43 +0000

UMass online course revenue surpasses $100M

By: David L. Harris

The University of Massachusetts said it set new records for online course enrollment and revenue in fiscal 2017.

UMassOnline course enrollments reached 75,565 for that fiscal year, up 6.6 percent from the previous year, while revenue surpassed $100 million for the first time ever, up 9.2 percent from fiscal 2016.

Over the past five years, online enrollment at UMass has risen by 39 percent, while online revenues have risen by 46 percent, the university said.

UMass said the increases in revenue and enrollment parallel the growth of the university as a whole, with enrollment rising to a record-high 74,678 students across the school's five campuses this past year.

Inside Higher Ed - Growing Enrollment, Out of the Limelight

Thu, 31 Aug 2017 19:11:48 +0000

Growing Enrollment, Out of the Limelight Amid a landscape of highly visible public university behemoths like Arizona State and Penn State World Campus, UMass Online hits $100 million in revenue by putting its campuses first. By Mark Lieberman Because UMass Online represents a consortium of five of the six University of Massachusetts campuses, it doesn't appear on most lists of biggest online institutions. Despite flying under the radar since its inception in 2001, the program has shown steady growth in recent years. University officials attribute the success to the consortium model, in which the individual campuses administer courses, while the system provides marketing, branding and other services at the campuses' expenses. "It is really the best of centralized and decentralized," said Marcellette Williams, senior vice president of academic affairs, student affairs and international relations for the University of Massachusetts system. UMass Online’s course enrollments have grown steadily in the last five years, up from 54,000 in 2012 to more than 75,000 this past school year. Besides increasing enrollment, the system offered approximately 160 degree programs during the past academic year, up from 145 in 2012. Officials said that three to five programs are being added each year. Not only are the numbers of students and programs way up, so are revenues -- $104 million in total for the five campuses during the 2016-17 academic year. Revenue in fiscal year 2012 totaled $72 million, and has grown between 7 and 10 percent each subsequent year. UMass Online undergraduate courses cost the same as face-to-face classes at the UMass campuses. Many master’s level courses also cost the same in either format, but some cost a little more online. Institutions don’t typically publicize their online revenue, so making comparisons with UMass Online’s reported revenue is difficult, analysts said.  Success Formula Public university systems have had a mixed record of offering online degree programs since the early 2000s. Some, like those developed by Penn State World Campus and the Indiana University System, have carved out solid success. Others, including efforts at the University of Illinois, have flamed out when costs became prohibitive. Others still, like California State University’s online program, came roaring out of the gate, only to shrink after a coherent strategy failed to coalesce. Models differ from freestanding institutions that offer degrees, like Penn State World Campus, to consortiums like UMass Online, which offer online degrees through existing campuses. Administrators at UMass Online attribute the consortium’s success in large part to what they see as a sturdy decentralized business model that puts students first, empowers educators and gives profits to the campuses. About three-quarters of UMass Online’s total revenue goes toward operating expenses; the remaining quarter is profit that goes to the five member campuses, according to UMass Online CEO John Cunningham. “There’s no motive for me to reel in extra expenses or operations because the goal is to support the campuses as much as we can,” Cunningham said. Approximately one third of the revenue funds faculty salaries, and another 20 percent goes toward student support and instructional design. Another portion heads to the offices of the registrar and bursar. Cunningham is particularly proud that the success of the online effort has a ripple effect on the campuses, with more money available for new technology and other classroom enrichment. Each campus pays the system between 4 and 7 percent of its annual revenue for the online system’s marketing expenses, Cunningham said. Jeff Seaman, co-director of the Babson Survey Research Group, said he believes this amount is standard, and perhaps even low for a decentralized system. But its decentralized approach, in which the campuses develop and host th[...]
