DEVELOPING AND EXECUTING CO-CREATED GROWTH AND OPERATING SOLUTIONS IS WHAT WE DO

Edcura partners with senior administrators and Boards to align strategy with results-driven execution.

Institutional Mission & Strategy

Edcura’s team of experienced educators, administrators and market strategists can help you to create and refine an institutional strategy that is more than just words on paper, but one that encompasses deep market and student understanding, staff development, forward-looking educational vision and an actionable execution path that successfully aligns boards, accreditors, alumni, the local community, financial partners and staff around educational mission, institutional growth and student outcomes.

Digital Marketing

Tomorrow’s students communicate in short. concise. authentic. micro-bites of information.

Leveraging qualitative and quantitative tools and techniques, Edcura crunches the data to help you to understand your student, your market and your growth opportunities. We develop creative campaigns that amplify the most powerful elements of your brand that target and engage with the right students, at the right time, through the ways that they expect to communicate.  Edcura’s unique combination of student engagement, powerful creative and social understanding and sophisticated message targeting uniquely position us help you to grow your share of students.

Enrollment Management

There are a lot of enrollment management solutions out there, but Edcura has a different model.  We partner with your enrollment teams to close the gaps that traditionally exist between value, brand, messaging, marketing and the prospective student experience.  Leveraging technology, advanced training, proven processes, team building and comprehensive data driven nurturing campaigns, Edcura understands the critical nuances of enrollment, the psyche of the passionate teams that practice it and the challenges inherent in transforming and growing department performance.

Financial Sustainability

Edcura understands the complexities of higher education financial management.  From pricing to the seasonality of cash flow, teaching efficiency to capital investments, Edcura’s team of experienced financial strategists are your CFO’s secret weapon to help stabilize, capitalize and ensure a financially sustainable institution across all operating departments.   Talk to us about how we can partner with your finance organization to help close the gaps between financial and campus operations.

Co-Investment

Edcura’s engagement model is different than a traditional service or agency provider.  We aspire to work in partnership with you for the long term success of the institution.  We know that you will want to get to know us, just as we will want to get to know you – but once we engage we are willing to invest along with you in the future of the institution.  Let’s get together and talk, and we can explore the possibilities together.

“When I joined the Columbia College Hollywood Board of Trustees, it was clear that we needed to do something different for this great college. Bringing in Edcura may have seemed unconventional under the old operating models of Higher Education, but for CCH it was the single best decision the board has made. Edcura has fundamentally transformed how we operate, without sacrificing our 60 years of culture and identity. The Edcura team is the CCH team, and supports us in the board as well as hands-on driving improvements and teaching across virtually the whole organizations.”
