“In this time of tight competition and even tighter industry regulations, it’s critical that schools be able to reach more and better-qualified students through effective, above-board practices. The enrollment and marketing teams are key lynchpins in this process. Simple steps such as better vendor management or creating consistent messaging can go a long way in improving student recruitment,” said Malcolm McLeod, Vice President of Inquiry Management Solutions at EducationDynamics. “This webinar will provide attendees with actionable insights that will ensure their school is consistent in its approach to serving the needs of a student, improving the experience for the student and helping the school meet its goals.”
