COLLEGE & UNIVERSITY CLIENTS
What our Partner Institutions say about Us
“Working with Market Entry has been a total positive experience. It has helped create a presence of our university all throughout India and in South Asia. Currently, we have seen an increase of about 30% with regards to applications being completed and submitted. I believe this will result in more international students on campus and it will also increase our overall diversity on campus. Market Entry brought great connections and experience into this collaboration to help spread our presence across South Asia. They helped us develop a strategy for recruitment, helped us prepare marketing materials and made suggestions on what events to attend to recruit potential students. If your university is investigating whether Market Entry could help you with recruiting international students, I would highly recommend you working with them.”
