In the highly competitive market of higher education, institutions understand the importance of graduate outcomes and student interest and are now taking a more data-driven approach when vying for prospective students.
One key factor in attracting students is offering a portfolio of compelling academic degree programs. However, when it comes to evaluating or launching a new academic program, many institutions have different opinions regarding the steps that should be taken.

Our extensive research has unearthed proven processes and methodologies to launch a successful academic program.
