Connect the dots, see the big picture.

We know first-hand that an institution needs to be able to answer many questions. Different questions require different techniques, from descriptive to diagnostic to predictive.

Descriptive and diagnostic analyses serve as the foundation for effective predictive analytics. Walk through our approach to tackling common challenges leveraging a variety of techniques.

Describe

Diagnose

Which variables correlate most significantly with enrollment (students who apply, deposit, and attend)?

Predict

What is the likelihood of every admitted student to enroll? What is the probability of hitting our desired enrollment target?
