43rd Annual Economics Outlook Seminar: The Future of Higher Education in Montana – Great Falls

January 24 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

The Future of Higher Education

Kate Fuller will be presenting at this 43rd Annual Montana Economic Outlook Seminar in Great Falls.

Seminar Description

Higher education is a future-oriented business – educating and preparing the leaders of tomorrow. But what is the future for colleges and universities themselves? In an economy that increasingly rewards knowledge and expertise, the need to cultivate and grow a competitive, skilled and educated workforce is more vital than ever. Yet the way we do this and the way we pay for it has come under the microscope in recent years. This year’s Economic Outlook Seminar examines the question of how Montana’s higher education system returns value to all of us who live and work here.

This half-day seminar and luncheon will highlight the latest economic trends for local, state, and national economies. BBER economists Patrick Barkey and Paul Polzin will present economic forecasts for each seminar city and industry specialists will provide an outlook for Montana’s important sectors: nonresident travel, health care, real estate and housing, agriculture, manufacturing, forest products and energy.
