Case Study: Greenhill College
Greenhill College is an organizational decision-making case study involving the financial stability of a fictitious small, private, religious liberal arts college with an enrollment of more than 2,000 students. Traditional, small liberal arts colleges, long a staple of the American higher education scene, are facing unprecedented challenges for survival. Steadily rising tuition costs, stiff competition for students, and escalating operational expenses represent just some of the pressures currently confronting Greenhill College. The college faces the immediate threat of an unbalanced budget, difficult decisions on financial and non-financial issues, and the need to manage possible morale issues. Finally, the administration must carefully address the potential of internal and external perceptions of the viability of Greenhill College.
