    I don’t think I would have been able to drive change without the solid market research A&S provided. A&S really helped us hone in on the major issue we had to address as an institution.

The A&S Approach

How we address our clients’ challenges in four critical areas

  • Real World Experience and the Liberal Arts

    Furman University, a former Art & Science Group client, is making great strides in finding their unique place in the market as a liberal arts college by developing programs that truly benefit both students and faculty. A&S Principal Ben Edwards says, “The key factor at play here is one of perceived value. You have an institution that’s charging more than competitors, which have honors programs to try and attract top students. You can’t offer SEC football, and you’re a smaller city. You have to prove your value in a way that the market could understand.”

  • Bard's Cash Crunch

    Bard College's financial rankings have decreased again, raising questions to their financial models. Inside Higher Education interviewed Art & Science Principals for insight into Bard's situation, which might be more related to other colleges than many assume.
