Higher education leaders work constantly to balance the competitive pressures of providing a profound student experience while achieving affordability and operational cost-effectiveness. 

The “business” of higher education evolves rapidly – with an increasing focus on budgeting, financial modeling and managing enterprise risks.  More than ever, trustees ask tough questions around student safety and potential cyber-attacks. This new environment presents unique opportunities for industry leaders to challenge the status quo.

Baker Tilly serves as a strategic partner to align with your own expertise in crafting effective strategies and approaches to meet these ever-evolving needs. Our philosophy relies on proactively anticipating institutional needs and helping you succeed in mitigating risks and adapting to change.

A forward-looking, collaborative and consultative ally, our unique insights as a nationally recognized accounting and advisory firm derive from a specialized focus on higher education and research institutions. Our dedicated higher education practitioners give you access to the industry’s best thinking about tax, audit, enterprise risk management, compliance, information technology and cybersecurity, fraud, and other strategic and operational issues.
