Data Analytics for Higher Education
Campus officials for higher education can leverage data analytics to determine the fit of each student to their institution. Administrators have focused priorities on increasing enrollment, ensuring successful students, and engaging their alumni as life-long supporters of the institution. Manual data management is no longer the answer when it comes to leveraging information from various sources to determine a student’s ultimate success. With The Copley Consulting Group and Qlik Analytics, Higher Education staff can access data and visualizations to make a new enrollee a student for life, providing insight as to how engaged a student is from the time they get on campus to years after they graduate.
Colleges and universities around the country collect an immense amount of information, from student application and enrollment data to classroom and professor performance metrics. This can create a challenge when leveraging information from many different sources. The Qlik Platform is designed as a complete end-to-end business intelligence solution to solve the challenges facing higher education in conducting analysis across disparate data systems.
Student for Life: Higher Education Data Analytics
Utilizing the Qlik application, universities and colleges can make more informed business decisions using the data they collect on their students, faculty and programs. The Copley Consulting Group designed the Student for Life application to guide higher education organizations through the four phases of student development: Application, Enrollment, Retention, and Alumni. Universities receive thousands of applications each semester and can use Qlik to drill down into any applicant for a holistic picture of a candidate. Upon acceptance, universities and colleges need to understand the candidate’s enrollment across the entire organization. The next phase of the student lifecycle is retention and ensuring individual success while enrolled. Last in the cycle is alumni development, establishing a strong relationship with past students to ensure they stay involved with the college upon graduation.
