After a national search, Cabrini College has engaged the firm to analyze new and existing markets for its fast-growing graduate programs, particularly degrees in education. The assessment will help ensure that the college remains responsive to the region it serves while continuing to expand its offerings to new populations.
Based near Philadelphia, Cabrini is a Catholic college whose graduate and professional programs focus on educating educators. Those programs now serve some 2,000 Master’s degree candidates, ten times the number enrolled a decade ago.
The college’s leadership team would like to take a rigorous look at its portfolio of programs to optimize its strategic choices in the coming years. Slover Linett’s market assessment will examine both demand for, and supply of, graduate programs in education in greater Philadelphia area, using a range of secondary data sources and statistical techniques.
Our work for Cabrini is led by Bill Hayward, senior associate for higher education, who is excited to help the school’s administration take a broad view of its offerings. “Often, our research involves asking prospects, students, or alumni questions,” he notes. “Here, we have the opportunity to ‘zoom out’ from individual perspectives and look at the whole marketplace as a system. That analysis should point out the right path for continued growth and sustainability for Cabrini’s graduate programs.”
The Cabrini research adds to Slover Linett’s presence in the Philadelphia region. Since 2003 we’ve worked with several of the city’s cultural and educational institutions, including the Philadelphia Orchestra, Kimmel Center, Philadelphia Live Arts Festival & Philly Fringe, Fleisher Art Memorial, and Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia.
