Metropolitan College of New York
recruitment strategy achieves 105% of goal
The research-driven recruitment strategy we created for Metropolitan College of New York (MCNY)—which focuses on community outcomes rather than “talking heads”— helped the urban higher education institution inspire student targets to take action, exceeding enrollment goals and priming the pump with interested applicants for the following semester.

focus on social outcomes, not sprawling campuses
Our recruitment campaign disrupted the category conventions: Rather than featuring aspirational students and sprawling campuses, we focused instead on the tangible social outcomes MCNY grads achieved through the nonprofit college’s differentiating Purpose-Centered Education approach.
Be where prospective students are
We utilized advanced digital targeting and messaging—in traditional media channels—to hit prospects where they lived, worked, and rode.
A new building, a new branded look
MCNY asked us to work with the architects of their new campus to bring brand consistency and a fresh, contemporary look to their Financial District home.
