Market Analysis for the UMass Center at Springfield
Prepared for the UMass President’s Office
The UMass Center at Springfield, a system-wide satellite center of the University of Massachusetts, was established in 2014 to provide an education and workforce development facility to meet the needs of the Greater Springfield community. The Center offers coursework through partnerships with higher educational institutions, including all the UMass campuses and local community colleges, and currently hosts 3-4 active research entities in several different fields.
The following market analysis was conducted by the Economic and Public Policy Research unit of the UMass Donahue Institute to connect labor market opportunities for students and program offerings, and to identify additional fields of study and partners which may be able to broaden the Center’s activities and help sustain it.
