WEBINAR – The Power of Connected Planning for Higher Education

Leading universities have been calling for a more strategic and proactive approach to financial planning. But how can it be achieved?

Join Sam Horne BA BFP FCA – Director of Finance at the University of London, discussing the benefits a connected planning model is bringing to the world-leading University.

In discussion with Stephen Pass, sector lead for Higher Education, the talk will cover topics such as;

  • Connected planning for long-term scenario planning to understand the impact on funding and liquidity.
  • Reducing the complexity of forecasting income streams including student number planning.
  • Increasing collaboration across faculty leaders and finance teams
  • How disparate systems and siloed data had caused slow responses to changing conditions or blind decision-making

Why attend:

President and vice-chancellor of the London School of Economics wrote in the FT “In the last academic year, English universities lost £1,750 for every UK student they educated. That annual loss will increase to approximately £4,000 per home student by the time they graduate in 2025.” With increased pressure to reduce overseas student numbers, how can University Finance teams act with agility and make smarter decisions with the intelligent use of data.
