International growth of Online program management (OPM)

The Online program management (OPM) market is growing in terms of the number of institutions using OPM providers and in the number of providers. The market is also showing signs of consolidation as the providers figure out how to position themselves in this competitive landscape. What we don't hear much about is the international trend that is also taking shape. Yes, the US market started earlier and is still larger than all others combined, but the international market is growing and becoming more and more important.

The graph below shows this growth of non-US OPM implementations. Unsurprisingly, the top growth outside the US comes from the English-speaking countries - Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia.
