Online Program Management Market Size, Share 2021 Global Analysis by Trends, Growth, Statistics, Region and Industry Forecast To 2027

The global online program management market accounted for US$ 3,916.3 million in 2019 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 15.4% during 2020–2027 to reach US$ 11,986.4 million by 2027.

For higher education, the institutions that are focusing on developing or expanding their online programs have to make strong decision on whether to leverage a third-party OPM organization or attempt to build and execute in-house. The online learning is capital intensive, and the culture and processes around supporting, attracting, and retaining the adult learners differ from those needed for traditional learners. The institutions face several resource constraints and further venturing into online learning has considerable risk as the development of the program needs upfront investment. The public–private collaborations have the potential for reducing these complexities and enable schools to concentrate on their core operation of teaching and learning. Additionally, the strategic partnerships are made between universities and colleges with OPM support to take steps to launch expanded online support services for stimulating the online education growth. For instance, Texas Woman’s University partnered with Keypath Education to provide two online programs focused on Family Nurse Practitioners (FNP). Such courses will help in developing advanced skills of primary care providers. Online program managers (OPMs), who are driving an increasing number of programs, are responding to universities’ and colleges’ desire for more flexibility and control in running the courses. OPM providers also increasing various services, while individual OPMs are enhancing specialties.
