Principles of Marketing and Enrollment Management
In an increasingly competitive market, colleges and universities must develop strategies for attracting and retaining students according to their missions and the needs of the community. In this course, professionals learn fundamental principles of marketing, institutional promotion, and enrollment management in a higher education context, including branding, differentiating and positioning, forecasting, and communicating with the public and alumni. They engage in discussions on a variety of issues related to strategic enrollment management processes, including legal and regulatory considerations related to student recruitment, financial aid, diversity issues, and methods to align marketing and recruitment efforts with institutional mission and goals. Demonstrating understanding of course concepts, education professionals complete an institutional case study to examine institutional approaches to enrollment management and marketing as well as related challenges.
