"2013/1st Half/Trends Report/Education Industry"
Mergers and acquisitions in the education industry rose by 5 percent in the first half of 2013 over the second half of last year, an uptick driven by deals focused on testing and assessment products, cloud-based systems, e-reading, and other areas, says a new analysis.
