Quality Information Increases Student Interest in Universities
When a student chooses a program, it’s not only a decision about a subject and place of study, but also a choice regarding future career. Such a choice has a big impact on students’ dreams, plans, budgets and decisions that affect their personal and social life for at least the next 2 or 4 years.
On the other side, marketing departments at universities look for the best option to attract students to their programs. Decisions about media channels dominate their strategies – but what about the content? Which information is best to give to students so that they choose the right programs?
The new categories give advertisers the possibility to offer prospective students high-quality information about their university and specific programs being offered. Moreover, it gives institutions the chance to include detailed information about courses, funding options and even hints about the percent of international students and class size.
It has been proven that well informed students make better decisions and are more engaged with educational opportunities. At the same, it is known that high-quality leads are more valuable than untargeted advertising that results in low commitment from program applicants. Based on such information, our new products seek to give universities an opportunity to fully show their competitive advantage and state clear reasons why students should choose their institution for studying and developing their career.

How to create value for your university
How does a University create value? Can it be priced, monetized or measured by the products delivered by the University? For whom does the University create value? Susana Borras suggests that the main way to produce value is research1. Moreover Robert Thornton mentions2 that a university can be run as a market institution, but ultimately the aim of tertiary education is the production and sharing of knowledge.
