  • The initial hour of research showed that data is more readily available for key players who provide support services to higher education schools. Data for for-profit trade schools and training schools are not as readily available, however, more research will likely uncover data for the educational support services in general. Our research also revealed that key players that provide these management services are mainly consulting firms but the market seems to be quite fragmented.
