Consultancy

Marketing Consultancy

The studentROI Consultancy Group works not unlike an integration specialist, or a general contractor when building a house. Where the project calls for areas of specialization outside our wheelhouse, we call on trusted partners inside our Resource Community.

When projects do fall outside our scope of specialization we are the first to acknowledge it, and based on our volume of work inside the EDU industry we have gained a trusted network of stakeholders we can trust to deliver the results we as clients demand. If our Resource Community can’t fill the needs of the project, we work to discover new trusted partners to provide the areas of expertise needed to deliver the strategic plan developed by studentROI and our clients.

This community approach allows for our past successes to be enjoyed by future clients.

All of our Resource Community partners have a high level of job ownership – and work exclusively with studentROI inside the EDU vertical.

Student Recruitment & Enrolment Management

Student recruitment and enrolment management is the primary driver of your admissions team success.

StudentROI provides industry proven strategies, practices and processes developed in tandem with our Agency Services team and Management Services Consultancy Group

The studentROI Management Services Consultancy Group leans on over 100 years of senior level EDU admissions, and marketing experience - their primary focus is an improvement of your admissions department ROI via industry proven marketing, admissions, and enrollment direction, adjustments, and ongoing strategic guidance.

We work with schools that wish to review and determine if their current marketing, admissions, and enrollment practices are fully optimized to maximize inquiry, application, and start outcomes.

We review current marketing allocations, and based on industry past successes, and current learnings we provide guidance on media allocations, as well as strategic marketing consultation.
We work with schools that want to learn how to lift their student marketing ROI by increasing starts and reducing their cost per enrollment and cost per start via impactful enrollment processes.

We provide your marketing and admissions departments with an added advisory resource, to ensure their decision making is complemented by field tested, industry leading expertise.

Privacy Regulations, Compliance

Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) in Canada and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) in the United States as well and additional privacy legislation in both countries has forced schools to change their contact habits.

Government, and Regulatory Board compliance related to school programs, degree types and language used to communicate the offerings has also forced schools to a new level of diligence of their advertised content.

Our consultants bring industry experience, and field tested solutions to both of these challenges.

School, Program Development

We have been approached many times to help develop new school concepts, new programs or help to launch new programs within an existing school. Development can be achieved via consultancy, or a partnered approach and tied to the success of the school, campus or program.

Assurance and Advisory services

Each year you are required to prepare a corporate tax return which is accompanied by a set of financial statements.
