Using Alteryx and Tableau, the University of Dayton was able to quickly blend and analyze data to deliver strategic insights about student behaviors and outcomes, optimize the admissions and enrollment process, and improve retention. Alteryx and Tableau are allowing UD to get a competitive leg up – allowing them to identify the right students for admission and retain and graduate those scholars at increasing rates.
In my last blog I told you how universities can profile existing successful students and leverage those profiles to recruit students who exhibit similar characteristics, giving you the ability to target each student segment appropriately, with the right message and the right medium. A second higher education use case is student retention.
Organizations across varied segments have access to data – customer data, transactional data, financial data, etc. Whether these segments are successfully leveraging data to make smarter business decisions or improve internal processes is another discussion.
