Advance your market position
with our image and positioning analyses

We offer two types of research studies to help you gather
the data you need to understand and change your market position.

Institutional Image and Competitive Positioning Analysis™ (more comprehensive)

This complete enrollment research package offers comprehensive decision data for image enhancement and strategic market positioning. It consists of quantitative and qualitative research along with an audit of your enrollment-related communications. The analysis prepares your institution to compete effectively in its marketplace and to distinguish itself from institutions vying for the same student populations.

Marketing Communications Analysis™ (faster delivery)

This enrollment research service is geared specifically to student recruitment communications. The quantitative and qualitative research methods result in a marketing theme and lead messages to support your institution’s enrollment objectives. Primary research methods include focus groups, surveys, and an analysis of competitor communications.
