Increased student pool by 50%, admission enrolment rates by 15%, and reduced drop-out rate by 10% for a leading medical school

Challenges
A leading global medical school was looking to expand its student base. The goal for the first year was to identify and enroll 700 new incremental students. The educational institution lacked the means to target students likely to convert, which cities and towns to target, and the factors that will help in the conversion. Successful outcomes required not only bias for high enrolment but retention and successful placement in a residency program.
