Getting the metrics is not the hard part, it’s understanding them that’s tricky. Guessing at what your metrics might mean will get you nowhere fast. Turning numbers into action is what makes the difference between a strong, contributing member of your team and a weak link.

You will be able to immediately apply techniques to improve your analysis and add value to your institution. You will learn how this kind of analysis is used to make positive changes within higher education marketing and enrollment.
