The Student Enrollment Experience

EAB Enrollment Management Services and Marketing

Richardson Ballroom – DiGiorgio Campus Center

8:40 AM

While many universities have spent considerable time improving communications with prospective students, most universities haven’t focused specifically on the experience those communications create for prospects. By being more intentional about the cultivation of the application and matriculation experience, universities can strategically differentiate from competitors.

This presentation is grounded in innovative approaches from the business to consumer world that are translated for higher education. Institutions will learn strategic frameworks for enhancing the enrollment experience and best practices on tailoring yield management for Gen Z, first-generation, and beyond.
