Are We At Peak Master’s Degree? Part 2

While the enrollment trouble at for-profit universities has been making all the news the past few years, graduate school enrollment has been on the decline at traditional non-profit universities, too. The numbers of Master’s degrees, but not doctorates, awarded in the past three years has been flat...

Effect of recession on net tuition

Recessions, Tuition, & Privatization of Public Universities

After a prolonged period of rising enrollments, the tide seems to have turned. After peaking in 2011 both undergraduate and graduate enrollment are on the decline. This is not a waning demographic bubble. Something else is going on... It appears to work something like this: During recessions, state legislatures withdraw subsidies for higher education, presumably because state tax revenues are down... I call this trend the “privatization” of public universities. Simply, as state support erodes the cost and behavior of public universities is more and more like that of private universities.

Making recruitment easy & effective

Works like a grad school fair open every day, all day, for a full year. Hundreds of thousands of prospects attend. The right prospects for your program are easy to spot and connect with. No costly travel expenses or wasted time, and all of your programs and faculty and staff can participate.

Collaborative Recruiting.

Graduate programs need field-specific recruitment solutions from their Deans. Deans need something cost-effective. Staff need help from their faculty. Faculty need time-efficient tools. Add them all as collaborators to share responsibility and recruit the best!

We are Academics

We’ve applied to graduate school, run graduate programs, recruited students, and made admissions decisions. We know how it works.
Based on our experience recruiting graduate and undergraduate students, and working way too hard to find the right graduate programs, we created Gradschoolmatch to make advanced degree recruiting a two-way conversation.

Dedicated to serving traditional, non-profit universities and ambitious students everywhere.
