Data Driven Student Journey
Data Driven Student Journey

The “Customer Journey” refers to the process of measure, understand and analyze the interactions that a customer has with a particular brand or product. The candidate will devise difference and similarities of these techniques with the digital experience that the students have with the university. In particular, he/she will evaluate and analyze various approaches for measuring and enhancing the digital experience that the students have in interacting with the university in various phases of their studies. This thesis is not about interviewing students or send surveys around; it is way more concrete and data driven. Example of topic of interest includes:

  • Data collection and quality
  • Data enhancing using popular social networks and search engine (Google, Bing, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc. )
  • Data reporting and filtering.
  • Digital Analytics

The candidate will propose alternatives and develop proof of concepts that will be evaluated by the marketing division for refining the “digital student journey” of the students of the university.
