Moody's: 70% of wealth in higher ed is concentrated among 20 institutions - Autumn A. Arnett, Education Dive

According to a recent Moody's analysis of private colleges, 70% of the wealth in higher ed is concentrated between 20 institutions, while most others continue to struggle with declining revenues and negative investment returns. Nearly one-third of small colleges across the country were operating in the red in fiscal 2016. This number represents an increase from 20% three years ago, and shows a steep contrast to large institutions, which saw a decline in institutions facing operational deficits from 20% to 13% in the same period. Expense growth is outpacing revenue growth, though by small margins, while the median return on cash and investments last fiscal year was -1.8%.
