Develop brand and program marketing strategies for institutions that accurately reflect and leverage student and market demand, ensuring strong ROI and sustainable growth, by employing sophisticated research and analytic techniques

Program Development

We help institutions effectively develop new degree programs by accurately quantifying the relative importance of a range of different factors that shape a prospect’s enrollment decisions. With the use of cutting-edge choice- and menu-based conjoint methodologies, we help institutions optimally develop new programs and strategies that accurately reflect demand, ensuring strong ROI for these new programs—as well as sustainable growth for institutions.

Market Analysis

Engaging sophisticated predictive and financial modeling, incorporating market sizing and analysis, Cicero has led many studies on behalf of institutions to assess the potential for opening new campuses in various target locations, resulting in data-informed site and program decisions.

Economic Impact Analysis

Institutions of higher education are typically accountable to a range of stakeholders. Often, there is need to demonstrate the value an institution creates beyond the student, research, and community outcomes generated by that institution—particularly in a quantifiable, economic way. Cicero conducts sophisticated economic modeling on behalf of institutions to demonstrate impact on local and regional economies, in terms of both dollars and jobs created.
