Marketing Your Programs: Grad vs. Undergrad

There are some key differences between promoting an undergrad program and a grad program internationally:

Undergrad:

  • Prospective students are high school students
  • Typically, parents are the ones who pay, but students are the real ‘consumers’
  • Marketing has to speak to both parents and students to persuade both that you are the right school for them

Grad:

  • Prospective students may be undergrad students or working adults
  • In the case where they are working adults, they usually pay for the program themselves. Otherwise their company pays for it.
  • Certain grad programs can also be promoted as corporate training programs or executive education programs

These will also guide you in your marketing direction and strategy.
