Austin, TX (PRWEB) November 05, 2012
From world-renowned research institutions to private liberal arts colleges, decision makers across the U.S. are looking beyond traditional undergraduate programs for ways to build enrollment and bottom lines. Why are search engines, social media, websites and brand strategies more important than ever for colleges looking to grow enrollment among international students, distance learners and graduate-level scholars? What higher education marketing practices are delivering today’s biggest enrollment returns on investment?
These higher education marketing questions and others will be answered at an upcoming seminar "New Frontiers: Growing Online, International & Graduate Program Enrollment," on November 14th, 9 a.m. to noon, at the Mansion on Judges’ Hill in downtown Austin, TX.
This seminar, hosted by Elliance, will explore why (and how) well-positioned colleges are embracing newer, better marketing practices that leverage the power of their unique brand strengths, the recruiting pull of their own websites, as well as social and search engine marketing to engage more “right fit” students, from coast to coast, continent to continent, and grow enrollment in their online and graduate programs.
Specifically, the seminar will take a look at three very different colleges and the steps they took to extend their recruiting pipelines into new global markets, launch new graduate programs and revitalize lagging ones, and grow their online programs.
“Colleges and universities that are growing are tapping both online and international students,” states Abu Noaman, CEO of Elliance, Inc. and seminar presenter. “Enrollment officers in high-growth institutions are investing in digital strategies that scale well rather than traditional and on the ground strategies.”
