  • Does our academic portfolio include the most compelling, in-demand programs?
  • How could our current programs be improved?
  • What program offerings should we consider launching?
  • What are my competitors’ most successful degree offerings?
  • What specific skillsets are employers looking for?

A Word from One of Our Higher Education Clients:

We partnered with Hanover because they have a reputation for excellence in research, possess a breadth of research expertise within the company, and feature access to a vast research archive.

Like all growing universities, Campbell has more research projects we’d like to execute than there is staff power to complete.  Partnering with Hanover and using the company’s resources will allow us an opportunity to explore lingering questions, like enrollment management and program development, and make informed decisions about the University’s future.

Campbell was seeking a research partner who has the experience to help us transform our general queries into refined research questions, access to the best external data bases, the internal resources and capacity to analyze our data, the capability of producing reliable findings and conclusions, and the ability to leave the results in our hands for us to make our own data-based decisions and create our own destiny. If you are looking for partners and not consultants, we recommend Hanover Research.

– Dr. John Roberson, Ed.D; Executive Assistant to the President
