    UMass Online = $100m in Revenue

    https://www.insidehighered.com/digit...nue-enrollment

    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.
    UMass is certainly a quiet giant in the online learning landscape.

    The legitimacy of a state university system is a very powerful sales tool. While I'm biased (although I've never taken an online class through UMass, my M.A. was in-seat), I think any state university system could have the same success if they employed similar sales & advertising strategies.
