Check where your future recruitment ambassadors are
Why Alumni Mapping?
One of the biggest challenges of international education leaders is to forecast how prospective student flows will change, due to political and societal changes. Of course each country has a student potential and is impacted by new immigration rules, incoming and outgoing.
How can this impact the day-to-day work of international teams? Obviously dealing with higher volumes in new countries will be part of the strategies. Two key aspects are to be kept in mind : reaching the students in these new markets, and using available strengths in said area. Alumni are one of these potential strengths and having a global view of where they are can be a very efficient tool at several level : getting better enrollments figures, developing fundraising, creating new partnerships, and increasing brand awareness in local high schools, universities and educational fairs.
