Academic Program Assessment Grow with promising new degrees and certificates

Uncover the best program additions for your institution

When it comes to attracting and enrolling students, an institution’s academic programs are its most valuable asset. But how do you ensure you’re launching the right programs for the outcomes you want to achieve? With so many factors to consider, launching a viable program is often easier said than done.

Hanover’s skilled researchers help institutions assess the viability of new programs by assessing student and labor market demand, market saturation, web search trends, and other data-driven factors. The result? Academic leaders can make informed decisions and, subsequently, the right program investments.
