Admissions | Tableau Exchange


by Tableau


The Tableau Accelerator for Admissions gives you a jumpstart to data-driven insights on your admissions process. Academic institutions can use this Accelerator to better understand school enrollment trends to help them plan for future growth.

In the academic world, “admissions” is the process by which the university/management school recruits new students. This process usually happens in three steps:

  1. Application: candidates submit their application
  2. Acceptance: after a selection process, applicants are notified of their acceptance or rejection
  3. Enrollment: when the candidate accept their admission, they are considered as enrolled students

Yield Rate is the share of enrolled students compared to admitted applicants. It generally measures the attractivity of an institution.
