Leading Investment Voices in Education Take Center Stage
BMO Capital Markets, the investment and corporate banking arm of BMO Financial Group (NYSE:BMO)(TSX:BMO), held its 15th annual Back to School Education Investor Conference in New York last week. Dr. Rod Berger, in collaboration with MindRocket Media Group, captured views from business leaders to investors taking a look behind the scenes of investment in education and technology.
The conference was first launched in 2001 and is the largest and longest-running institutional investor conference dedicated exclusively to the education sector. This year, attendees weighed in on rapid change in the industry, as global education providers contend with teaching models that are moving away from textbooks and toward digital formats.
"Education and education services providers are looking at how to handle rapid technological changes in the sector. The Back to School conference is a key event for anybody - whether they be operators or investors - who is interested in how the education industry is evolving," said Jeff Silber, Analyst, BMO Capital Markets Research, who hosted the conference.
