Average Interview


The process took a week. I interviewed at Colorado Technical University (Colorado Springs, CO) in March 2011.


I was interviewed by the President, who was new to their job, the chief operating officer and the HR manager. They were very professional. This is a for profit university. So the emphasis on the interview was different from other higher education institutions I have worked for. CTU is part of Rasmussen Education, Inc. and is run like a corporation. However they offer degrees through the doctoral level, so it is not just a samll technical school. For profit schools are now under pressure from the feds to minimize student loan default rates. this can hurt enrollment numbers, and thus hurt funding. So the interview really focused on strategies for maximizing profitability of the school, more than education of the students.
