How valuable is the Program Roadmap & Market Trends Report if you don't have 6 of my direct competitors participating?

How valuable is the MBA Lifecycle comparison report if my direct competitors are not participating? Why order the Program Roadmap & Market Trends Report?

The Program Roadmap & Market Trends Report (PRMTR) is much more than comparison to your peer programs. In addition to providing a graphical display of your data not found in the Topline Summary, this report provides the Student/Alumni Loyalty Index, trending of your data and trending of industry data, Key Driver Analysis, and comparisons to industry segments - programs of similar type (FTMBA, PTMBA, EMBA, and SpecMS).
This article provides more detailed background about the advanced analysis within the Program Roadmap & Market Trends Report: Why should my program order the Program Roadmap & Market Trends Report?
We started integrating Key Driver Analysis into these reports instead of charging an additional fee in 2012: Percept Research Announces 2012 Fees and Enhanced Survey Report

Encouraging More Peer Comparisons

In addition to innovating our MBA Lifecycle Survey Suite each year, we are constantly employing marketing and promotional campaigns to boost participation by full-time, part-time, executive MBA and Specialized Master's programs.

Please alert your Percept Research Project Manager if you would like to recommend or, better yet, refer other programs participate in our MBA Lifecycle surveys. We may ask you for an introduction or testimonial to encourage your peers to participate — we have found this is the best reflection of value for new participants. :)
Update: We have renamed the Competitive Intelligence Report to the Program Roadmap & Market Trends Report. Please check out this blog article for more details:
