WITH SHIFT TOWARD DIGITAL, MARKETING ZEROS IN ON 17-22 YEARS OLDS
The University in the last year has refocused its marketing toward digital channels where traditionally aged prospective students spend much of their time.

The shift allows us to direct our messages more precisely and to nudge students toward the next step in the admissions process.
A recently concluded “application acceleration” campaign targeted at prospective students and their parents yielded a jump in applications. Marketing is now shifting toward admitted students and their parents, encouraging the students to confirm their enrollment.
The University maintains a presence in television and billboards, but with less frequency, allowing for greater investment in digital.
“Another benefit of digital is that we can more precisely see the results from our investment,” said Wayne Hill, chief communication and marketing officer. “So far the results are encouraging. Since launch of the campaign at the end of November, click-through rates and other measurable analytics have performed well above industry benchmarks.”
