Labor Market Analysis
Our research team draws on a wide range of databases, trusted industry reports and other resources to understand the labor market for students completing your program. In addition to federal data sources like the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, we leverage real-time labor analytics through Burning Glass, bringing deeper context to high-level salary and employment data.
This allows us to drill down into the finer details of virtually any field and look into employer demand for your specific program as well as the volume of jobs that require skills aligning with your curriculum. Are there emerging skills your program doesn’t currently teach but should consider? We advise on that too.
Some of the factors we examine include:
- Employer demand
- Key skills graduates will need to be competitive in the field
- Career growth potential
- Importance of other credentials, such as professional certification
Once we’ve assessed the career and competitive program landscape, our research analysts share their insights and collaborate with you to determine the best path for meeting your enrollment goals and ensuring your program’s long-term future.
Our measured and analytical approach to vetting new programs empowers our partners to adapt to a changing labor market and proactively meet the needs of students. Contact us to assess your program’s viability and begin to think strategically about achieving lasting growth.
