A recent trend at for-profit institutions is the coupling of job training with accredited academic programmes that offer traditional baccalaureate, professional, and graduate degrees. Richard Ruch, with administrative experience in both the nonprofit and for-profit sectors of higher education, takes readers inside these new for-profit institutions, describing who teaches there, who enrols and why, and how the for-profits are managed and by whom. He analyzes their different structures, services, and outlook on higher learning and training, and explains in detail how they make profits from tuition income.
