Enrollment Insights Podcast

Education Podcasts

The Enrollment Insights podcast is a 20-40 minute conversation released twice monthly. Most enrollment management and marketing podcasts interview leaders and we hear about what they’ve done. I’m more interested with novel solutions to problems, or ways to make processes better for students. I’m curious about the questions that spark internal reflection and end up changing entire processes. Conversations will include those in and out of enrollment management and marketing as well as with those outside of education entirely. To summarize: I want to talk about the tangents: ideas that seem outside of current feasibility and spark new ways of looking at data and strategy development. All episodes and resources are available at niche.bz/podcast
