In today’s increasingly complex higher education environment, there is great demand for skilled professionals in enrollment management. Whether you are new or experienced in this field, here are five ways you can take your career to the next level.
1. Earn a Noel-Levitz Certificate in Enrollment Management
You only need to complete six courses online to earn Noel-Levitz Certification in a program offered at Bay Path University. Finish in one year taking one course at a time. An accelerated eight-month schedule is also available. All of the coursework applies toward a master’s degree at the same time (see next item). A recent graduate, Brandy Cartmell, shared this: “The Certificate program has catapulted my career. I am now overseeing admissions, financial aid, student success, first-year programs, and the registrar’s office. My earning potential has more than doubled.” Learn more and apply.
2. Earn a Master of Science Degree in Higher Education Administration with a concentration in Enrollment Management
A master’s degree program offered by Bay Path University consists of 12 courses and can include Noel-Levitz Certification. Even if you already have an advanced degree, this master’s degree will increase your ability to make a difference for the campuses you serve, with courses such as Enrollment Management Principles and Practices, Leading Change in Higher Education, The Contemporary College Student, Student Personnel Services, and Higher Education Marketing and Communications. Learn more and apply.
3. Learn from an enrollment management consultant or become one
When you work side-by-side with a qualified enrollment management consultant, you can learn what he or she knows about successful strategies that have worked for others, including the types of tracking data that are critical for effective decision making. You are also likely to improve your personal track record of enrollment success—a platform that could advance your career or propel you into consulting. This doesn’t mean you need to leave your full-time campus job, as some consultants manage occasional assignments while remaining employed full-time. Did you know that Noel-Levitz has 80 people consulting this way?
