Grand Canyon Education Acquires Health Education Program

Grand Canyon Education (GCE)— the “business” side of Grand Canyon University — unveiled a huge transaction Tuesday.

GCE is buying Orbis Education Services for $362.5 million. Orbis is a provider of health education programs for a number of universities across the country, including Marquette and Northeastern.

So what does this deal mean for Grand Canyon Education going forward and its goal of competing in the sector?

To talk about that, The Show spoke to Doug Lederman, co-editor and co-founder of Inside Higher Ed.

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
