“Explained: What is an OPM?”
The FutureU podcast, hosted by Jeff Selingo and Michael Horn, released a new episode based on an interview with Phil Hill – “Explained: What is an OPM?” The hope is the episode can be used as a resource to capture the basics of the Online Program Management (OPM) market.
The three discussed what an OPM is – the concept and typical set of services – as well as what OPM companies are not allowed to do, who the big OPM players are, how the market is changing, how institutional decision-making is changing, what the controversies are, how nonprofit conversions fit into the market, and what trends to watch.
The podcast episode page includes a full transcript as well.
