Purdue University is already signaling that Purdue University Global's finances will be down again in FY 2019. But the Purdue community will be left in the dark until the end of the year. Many won't even know or care after the finances are disclosed.
While PG closes has closed physical campuses, five so far, they are becoming more closely tied to the real Purdue University. Purdue University owns PG. Purdue Global is on the real Purdue website. It is using the words "Boiler Up." It is invoking the 150 year history, it's Engineering School, and the names of Purdue's famous alumni like Neal Armstrong. It is selling all of this BS and even more BS to servicemembers, veterans, and their families. It is selling this to working people, on tv and online.
If Purdue University does nothing to serious to upgrade Purdue University Global, its online school and the Concord Law School, other than in marketing in advertising, the Purdue System will face the consequences.
Purdue University will be left holding the bag of sh*t that they bought for $1.
