Enrollment Management Solutions provide a comprehensive ongoing assessment of your institution’s enrollment process. Hanover’s team of experts will evaluate the effectiveness of your current enrollment initiatives and pinpoint areas for improvement throughout your enrollment funnel, from targeting the right applicants to maximizing matriculation rates.

We help you answer key questions and develop strategies for success:

  • Where are the inefficiencies in our institution’s enrollment process?
  • How (and where) should we target our recruiting efforts?
  • Why did students decide not to matriculate and where did they attend instead?
  • What factors would have changed a non-matriculant’s decision to attend?
  • How are other institutions recruiting students?

A Word from One of Our Higher Education Clients:

The current landscape is far more competitive than it was a few years ago.  We can no longer afford to make decisions based on syndicated research, decisions our peers have made, or gut feeling. We don’t have the luxury of a robust institutional research department to support our decision-making, and we see Hanover as a cost-effective way to provide custom research for a fixed annual cost that will inform decisions the College of Business is facing. We plan to leverage Hanover especially as it relates to new programming - assessing the viability of new offerings, our competition, and how best to attract and retain the best and brightest students. We would like to set a new standard and create a culture of data-driven-decision-making.  We are especially excited to develop a stronger understanding of our current market – what current programs should we expand and what new programs should we consider.  Working with Hanover will ultimately increase our competitiveness and ability to attract and retain students.
