Business Office Survey

Business Office Survey

As business officers, you rely on data to make decisions. In order to make the best decisions for your school, you need the best data possible. NBOA believes that the best data comes from you and your peers across the country.

To that end, each year, NBOA conducts an annual survey of the business office. The results of this survey, combined with expert analysis, provide valuable industry data and trends on business officer demographics, compensation, staffing, economic issues, financial aid, budgets, and more. Information is also collected on FTEs, enrollment, average class size, and reactions to the changing economic climate. This study, introduced with a thoughtful and comprehensive executive summary, offers critical insight into the business officer profession.

This one-of-a-kind survey provides an excellent resource for you and your school’s leadership team to assess trends within the independent school community. Use it to help you make the decisions that are top-of-mind for your campus.
