"Colleges are starting to see higher education in business-like realities. They are realizing that revenue depends on selling the college (recruitment) to its customers (students and families). Sales (enrollment) are based on the college's brand on the college's brand (image), product (courses, programs, degrees), and by creating a connection with the customer (customer service)."
