A new solution to the challenges facing graduate students and enrollment professionals
Westford, MA – November 20, 2014 – Students are more eager than ever to earn graduate degrees*—and graduate schools are eager to enroll them. But anyone working in graduate admission will tell you: “We need student leads.”
Why the disconnect?
With few reputable graduate school search resources, it can be difficult for students to find institutions that truly fit their goals, while on the institutional side, graduate enrollment marketing often takes a backseat to the push for undergrads.
In response to those challenges and growing industry demand, Carnegie Communications is thrilled to launch Graduate Colleges & Universities, a multi-channel marketing platform integrating targeted digital recruitment with a proven print outreach.
Through GC&U, students will find school-authored profiles from some of the top graduate programs in the country, from large flagship state schools to small niche offerings. Plus, they’ll get essential advice regarding the admission process, financial aid, work-life balance, and more.
GC&U’s companion site, GradCU.com, is powered by CollegeXpress, one of the most popular college and scholarship search sites available. It features a graduate program search, scholarship search, even more expert advice, and all of the resources of CollegeXpress, including 800+ college-related lists and rankings.
With Graduate Colleges & Universities, Carnegie is applying nearly 30 years of experience matching students and institutions through our groundbreaking Private Colleges & Universities Platform. Our graduate offerings are already seeing great results, and we know an exciting venture lies ahead!
If you would like to learn more about Graduate Colleges & Universities or speak with a member of our team, I would be happy to help coordinate interviews and share additional materials.
