EY-Parthenon featured in Inside Higher Ed
Vermont's Marlboro College has engaged EY-Parthenon to help it seek partnerships and proceed with a merger, as it faced challenges regarding enrollment numbers and discounted student tuition.
The Inside Higher Ed piece "Instead of Closure, a Merger," highlights that the main objectives of a merger were to create a partnership that would allow the institution to maintain its mission and academic priorities while creating stable finances.
In July 2019, Marlboro College and the University of Bridgeport announced plans to merge. The merger enables Marlboro to continue to offer its own programming on its own campus, but students will have the opportunity to take advantage of the University of Bridgeport’s programs as well. The two institutions will combine their strengths and values to provide an enriched academic experience to their students.
