Our approach to strategic branding of higher education institutions

Introduction and background

OUR APPROACH TO STRATEGIC BRANDING of higher education institutions

  • What is important and relevant to your target groups? What makes a college/university attractive? How are you currently perceived by different target groups?

  • Are your activities effectively building a strong brand? Are you satisfied with how you are perceived internally and externally?

  • How can you improve your university website and other marketing material (ads, brochures, posters, etc)? Is your intended message being communicated effectively?

  • What impressions do current students, employees and/or employer partners have? What are the perceived strengths and weaknesses?

  • How should you communicate the university/college offering to different target groups? What channels and which approaches are most effective for each group?

  • What should you emphasize in the communication to maximize its effectiveness? What do you need to reposition to create a desired image of your college/university?


Influence your brand in the right direction

Introduction and background

Influence your brand in the right direction

ALL HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS HAVE A BRAND.

Even if higher education institutions don’t actively control the brand, it exists and influences the opinions, actions and decisions of different groups.

THE CORE OF THE

BRAND IS THE UVP.

To influence the brand, universities/colleges need a Unified Value Proposition (UVP) that is attractive, true, credible, distinct and sustainable.

UVP

THE BRAND HAS AN INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL PERSPECTIVE.

Not only does a strong brand help attract future students, employees and/or partners, it also creates an internal identity, which increases loyalty, engagement as well as cultivates brand ambassadors.

AN EFFECTIVE STRATEGY NEEDS A SOLID FOUNDATION.

It is important that the UVP is developed using in-depth research about the relevant target groups, in order to create a compelling, sustainable and effective brand.
