Data Projects

Stop guessing and let your data be the engine that drives your team's success.

Data tracking, reporting, and analysis is key for any team and their goal setting. Often underutilized and misread, data can be a powerful tool allowing you to advocate for more staff, promote the correct programs, and market in the most effective ways.


The Challenge
A 5+ person Education Abroad Office at a mid-sized, private institution was struggling to grow enrollment and meet institutionally-set goals. Although they were sitting on a pile of data, they had no clear vision of their core student studying abroad, where there were gaps in programming, or how to best collaborate with academic departments to grow study abroad enrollment.
The Solution

The consulting services team did a deep dive into the current and historical data from this institution. Over the course of several weeks, the consulting team connected with each member of the team to discuss data collection methods and its use in decision making. They analyzed:

  • Past application conversions
  • Participant data
  • Marketing and outreach efforts
  • Courses completed on study abroad programs
  • And more!
Results & Outcomes

The consulting services team completed a full data analysis and presented a report showcasing potential areas for growth and marketing efforts with the highest return on investment. The team also delivered tools to continue using the data collected. Our tools included:

  • Handouts for each academic department, outlining historical data and potential areas of growth in their specific department
  • Course equivalency database by program, as well as by major
  • Streamlined process for data collection and usage moving forward

CIS Abroad provided excellent information on management, trends, and data that I will be able to use in my work. This opportunity was a real treat to us, education abroad professionals, as we shared ideas and plan to continue our discussions and collaborations. Great appreciation to CIS!
