Customized Solutions

Drawing on the expertise of seasoned higher education practitioners, NACUBO Consulting will provide members with customized solutions that match their specific needs, whether that is to grow net revenue, enhance their business models, or assess operations in business and finance. Most importantly, this new service will provide insight and relevant, actionable steps, along with implementation assistance.

For more than 50 years, NACUBO has supported business officers as they analyze and forecast their institutions’ finances, adapt to new business demands, envision opportunities amid change, and coordinate strategic plans with other departments on campus. We are pleased to offer this new consulting service led by Jim Hundrieser, our vice president for consulting, who has decades of experience in public and private higher education, including consulting with institutions of all sizes around the country.
