Alumni are becoming increasingly important for schools as a source of enrolments and support for a school’s development both through resources and financial measures. MMG Education’s School Alumni review is a comprehensive review of the perceptions, engagement and views of your school’s alumni.
A key feature of the School Alumni review is the reporting on alumni views, perceptions and needs segmented to specific alumni groups. Research findings can be segmented by alumni year cluster groups, location, current connection with the school and more.
Why engage in a School Alumni review?
The main purpose of the School Alumni review is to provide a school with views from its school’s alumni relating to their level of engagement with the school, perceptions of the school and views regarding future support.
The School Alumni review provides important, research based information enabling your school and your alumni association to build stronger links with its past students. Other benefits include:
- Deep insights to create an Alumni Strategic Plan.
- Insights into the level of loyalty of the alumni.
- Feedback on plans and effectiveness of engagement.
