Higher Ed Advisor: gaining fiscal resiliency through strategic integrations and creative combinations

Welcome to Higher Ed Advisor, the Baker Tilly podcast series where we speak with higher education industry leaders from across the firm about practical and proactive guidance to help colleges and universities protect and enhance their value.

We continue our fiscal resiliency podcast series with an episode on strategic integrations and creative combinations. These decisions are gaining even more popularity post-pandemic as college and university leaders are reimagining higher education through an integrated approach to meeting student and institutional needs.

Shelley Nickel, strategic higher education leader and advisor, joins our podcast to discuss the key considerations for executing an institution or system-wide integration, including the importance of data to support the case for change, what to do up front, who to involve and the critical path to implement a successful combination.
