    The StratEDgy blog is intended to be a thoughtful hub for discussion about strategy and competition in higher education.

They came from Oman, Chile, Lebanon, Hong Kong, Qatar – and the United States.

Earlier this week I taught the inaugural 2-day Strategy and Competition in Higher Education professional development program, which is based on the 15-week for-credit class I’ve taught for the last two years.  The discussions were fabulous.
