SNHU just bought a bootcamp

Southern New Hampshire University just bought a coding bootcamp.

Reported by Higher Ed Dive, SNHU has acquired boot camp provider, Kenzie Academy. Back in 2015, SNHU announced a partnership with Flatiron School to combine their degree program with a bootcamp curriculum and apprenticeship. But now, they’re apparently planning to integrate the bootcamp model more directly as a standalone offering.

The takeaway? As higher ed looks to expand their offerings, specifically with micro- and short-term credential offerings, expect to see more acquisitions like this moving forward.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
