Enrollment Management and Policy (MEd)

The Master of Education in Enrollment Management and Policy will focus on the preparation of graduates to assume positions within the field of enrollment management at two- and four-year postsecondary educational institutions, at professional graduate school programs, and at private preparatory schools. Our focus is on preparing candidates for both early to mid-career positions as well as for leadership positions within enrollment management organizations. The program consists of 30 units taught over 23 months and is delivered primarily on-line but with convergence seminars, thus this will be a hybrid program. The curriculum will cover a range of subjects including exploration of admissions models, legal issues in admissions and financial aid, institutional and public policy issues in student financial aid, theories and models of student retention, marketing, and enrollment management research. The final capstone experience will ask students to prepare a five-year strategic enrollment management plan. Students will develop a plan for the institution at which they are currently employed or a university or school selected with the assistance from faculty in the program.
