For instance, India has a growing middle-class population who recently was given the ability to borrow money from banks for an education. That being said, many of these students are focused on graduate programs and affordable options. As you might know, there are not many affordable options left for higher education in the U.S. This new group of students represents new challenges for colleges and universities. Once again, financial resources will need to be realigned.
Jose Flores Manhattanville talking about student systems: Data analysis can lead universities to deploy target marketing. In April 2017, I wrote an article on LinkedIn alerting colleges and universities to embrace techniques that most appeal to this new generation of students. A generation of students that have access to the internet 24/7 and they prefer that access be mobile. This change is forcing colleges and universities to develop clean digital footprints, which include being visible and active on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat, and now TikTok. Although immersed in the online world this generation demands individual attention, which has become a difficult task to manage in environments where there are large numbers of students. Today, leveraging workflow and technology gives colleges and universities an edge in making a student experience personal when they visit the campus.
Many traditional colleges are missing key components for non-traditional students and are not fulfilling specific market demands. Recently, I analyzed IPEDs enrollment data for full-time undergraduate students enrolled in the state of New York. This data analysis suggested that there were 764,826 students enrolled in the colleges and universities in New York for fall 2018. The for-profit institutions owned a 5% market share that represented 37,949 students. That meant that these are 37,949 students that chose a non-traditional education path that more aligned to their current academic and career needs instead of choosing a traditional college or university. I dug deeper into this idea and selected two schools (1 for-profit and 1 not-for-profit) that were in the same geographical location, only a few miles apart, in New York State. I chose a major that was being offered in both schools – business. The results were astonishing. If the traditional institution offered business programs in the same way the non-traditional institution did and it was able to attract the students to attend the institution with a smarter strategy, then it would essentially double its total enrollment nearly overnight. There is room to develop academic programming that is useful and attainable to a non-traditional population.
Jose Flores Manhattanville talking about college financial aid: Fortunately for international students, there are schools that make it a priority to give financial aid to students from outside of the country. Much of that funding is usually merit aid, which typically means students qualify on the basis of their academic achievements. Nearly 375 ranked U.S. colleges offered financial aid to at least 50 undergraduates from outside the U.S. during the 2013-2014 school year, with the average award totaling $18,790, according to data reported to U.S. News in an annual survey.
