In the coming year, we are focused on identifying which specific degrees are ready to launch, how to best market these programs (citing demographic and employment data), and backing up our strategy with real data. We decided to engage Hanover to help us meet our goals due to their reputation in the industry, services offered, and the positive communication we experienced. The range of services and quality of Hanover’s researchers is entirely beyond the reach of all but the very largest universities; if institutions want real data, analyzed by real professionals who have conducted these types of studies before (and know the pitfalls), they need to hire a firm for help. As administrators become more involved in recommending and leading academic decisions, they need to back up their assertions with data. With this, Hanover can help.
