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

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

Answer key business questions

  • Are we able to generate new applications?
  • What proportion of applicants choose to enroll after being offered admission?
  • What are the top intakes and programs and what is their impact on the total enrollment?
  • How fast are we able to recruit students?
  • How attractive are we compared to the competition?
