This post looks at the future of the Online Program Management (OPM) market in the wake of U.S. Department of Education regulations to come in 2024 including a potential end to its exemption from the incentive compensation ban. The bottom has already pretty much fallen out from under the industry with major players being acquired, taken private, or pivoting. Even sp, analyst Chris Gardiner manages to put an optimistic face on his outlook, saying "the revenue-share model is attractive to institutions lacking the funds, capacity, and expertise to launch online programs independently" and "we also expect increased demand for online program enablement–where institutions pay for specific services, either bundled or unbundled, as competitive pressures increase."
