Stand out to students and employers with a winning academic portfolio
One of the most effective ways to attract potential students is to attract the employers who will one day hire them. And a sure way to do that is by having a strong academic portfolio with a robust mix of degree and certificate programs. Achieving this, however, is a huge undertaking. Assessing current programs and identifying new ones takes time and resources that institutions don’t always have.
At Hanover, our experienced researchers partner with colleges and universities to comprehensively analyze academic portfolio data. Using proven methods, our portfolio optimization solution equips academic leaders to define markers of program success and zero in on high-growth, high-demand programs that drive both student enrollment and employer engagement.

“Establishing a satellite campus in D.C. for our Master’s in Business Analytics program was an important decision for us. We suspected it would be a very beneficial move for Darden and McIntire, but we needed evidence to back that up. Hanover was able to prove to us, and the state accrediting body, that we were making a sound decision.”
– Maureen Wellen, Executive Director, Faculty Advancement at UVA’s Darden School
