Pioneers in higher education innovation

Community college students walking and talking in between classes

Higher education leaders turn to Baker Tilly to enhance student and institutional success. Our client experience spans from effective risk management and innovative strategies to compliant fiscal reporting and operational controls.

Colleges and universities are under increasing pressure to improve student engagement and outcomes while meeting demands for greater transparency and affordability. More than ever, stakeholders are exploring challenging questions on topics including academic and admissions integrity, enrollment management, cybersecurity and student wellness.

This ever-changing environment presents unique opportunities for (and expectations that) institutions transform in new and bold ways, such as adopting advanced data analytics and strategic talent management. To be successful, institutions must harness the force of an integrated, courageous navigator who can collaborate with leaders across all functions and levels to drive holistic solutions from an institution-wide perspective.

Let's embark on this journey, together.
We have a responsibility to our schools and the public to make well-informed educated decisions. It is important that our advisors are meticulous in what they do, proactive in the way they do it and possess a high level of knowledge in the higher education industry. Baker Tilly is one such firm.
