Nuanced student insights

Regis University’s Anderson College of Business and Computing combines an innovative business education with the technological foundation necessary to succeed in today’s global marketplace. To drive enrollment for its marketing and MBA programs, the college worked with Qualtrics to develop a more nuanced understanding of its regional market, including both traditional and nontraditional students from the Western and Midwestern United States.

Complex studies made easy

Anderson College leveraged Qualtrics’ modern insights platform to easily develop multiple studies focused on its prospective student market. Robust attitudes, awareness & usage research helped the college uncover the features prospective students value most in an MBA program. And in a follow-up Conjoint study, administrators were able to understand the relative importance of those features in driving enrollment, which made it easy to prioritize changes and initiatives.

Anderson College took advantage of Qualtrics’ advanced survey logic and powerful Conjoint tool to simplify complex programming requirements and analyses. What’s more, the college partnered with Qualtrics Research Services to implement each study. Working with a Qualtrics sampling expert, Anderson College was able to easily and confidently reach its target regional demographic and ensure robust samples of specific populations of interest. Qualtrics managed the data collection from start to finish, thus allowing Anderson College’s internal team to remain focused on interpreting incoming results and setting the strategic direction for its marketing and MBA programs.

Clear view, focused strategy

From this research, Anderson College was able to develop more meaningful market segments, describe key drivers of enrollment, and identify specific areas for improvement. The college leveraged these findings to optimize its marketing and MBA program offerings for target student segments, and re-center its enrollment marketing strategy to meet their unique expectations and needs.
