The Education Business

Education and how to make a profit from it is the focus: from low-cost private schools in Ghana to no-frills law courses and a Liverpool University campus in China.

Education and how to make a profit from it is the focus for Evan and his three guests this week - each of them business leaders in the learning sector.

From low-cost private schools in Ghana to no-frills law courses and a University of Liverpool campus in China, our guests will share their business lessons on how to build a reputation and how to price a good education. They'll also talk about the challenges of taking on traditional, public institutions as well as the technological advances that look set to transform learning over the next 20 years.

As usual, The Bottom Line cuts through confusion and spin to present a clearer view of the business world.

Guests this week are Carl Lygo, Chief executive of BPP; Professor Sir Howard Newby, Vice Chancellor of the University of Liverpool and Professor James Tooley, chairman of Omega Schools.

Series producer: Helen Grady
Series editor: Innes Bowen
Series researcher: Ben Carter.
