How Private Schools Can Leverage M&A to Survive and Thrive

For some schools, the best move toward long-term sustainability is to merge, and for many others, simply collaborating can help them better achieve their missions and expand their impact. Armanino’s Dean Quiambao and Mike Boulton team up with NBOA's Jennifer Hillen and LearnCollab's Chad Tew to answer top-of-mind questions regarding mergers and acquisitions. Register and submit questions in advance here.
