By Lisette Alvarez October 31, 2016
Andrew S. Rosen is Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Kaplan, Inc., among the largest, most diverse global education organizations and the largest subsidiary of The Washington Post Company. Throughout his career, Rosen has helped pioneer much of Kaplan’s innovation and growth, with a focus on student success and outcomes. These include the founding of Concord Law School, the first fully online law school in the U.S.; the development of Kaplan University; and the creation of new blended online and classroom-¬‐based learning opportunities for both working adults and test preparation students.
Rosen’s book Change.edu: Rebooting for the new talent economy details the history of American higher education and describes how to restore its pre-¬‐eminence by focusing on the goals of learning outcomes, access, affordability, and accountability. The book earned positive reviews in The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Forbes, Fortune, and elsewhere. Bill Gates called it “truly important” for the debate about improving higher education; Joel Klein called it a “must-¬‐ read book.”
Rosen joined Kaplan in 1992, and was named Chairman and CEO in November 2008. Before Kaplan, he was an attorney at The Washington Post and associate counsel at Newsweek. Rosen holds an A.B. degree from Duke University and a J.D. from Yale Law School.
