Forecasting the Impact of COVID-19

Watch EAB's On-Demand Webinar

Presenters: Megan Adams and Alexa Silverman

During a once-in-a-lifetime crisis like COVID-19, it is impossible to accurately forecast when campuses will reopen and how current and prospective students will behave in response.

In the absence of certainty, scenario planning offers a way for leaders to plan ahead for the medium term. Using early indicators and extrapolating from past economic and global health data, EAB has developed three scenarios for how to forecast the impact of COVID-19 on university enrollments, finance, and student success over the next 12-18 months.

Join the webinar to:
  • Learn why past data is necessary but insufficient to predict the future
  • See EAB’s most up-to-date projections for each scenario
  • Share guidance on how leaders can overcome the most common challenges of planning during a crisis
