University branding is more important than ever

What’s going on in universities and colleges? As the commencement speeches wrap up and the latest university grads make their way into the real world, it is worth a moment to reflect on the world of higher university branding.

“To that end, more and more universities and colleges are discovering how important it is to view their offerings as a real business and not an ivory tower.”

University branding needs to try harder

To that end, more and more universities and colleges are discovering how important it is to view their offerings as a real business and not an ivory tower. University branding is more important than ever. Marketing their value to prospective students is an important endeavor for university administrations these days. They must attract the top students and find a way to differentiate its particular university offering from the myriad of choices.

Stealing Share took a hard look at these marketing messages and just posted a detailed study that includes private, public, and for-profit colleges and universities. How are they doing? Check out our report card here and see for yourself.
