Why should I register early for the MBA Student Entry Survey? Why should I register early for the MBA Student Midterm Survey? Why should I register early for the MBA Student Exit Survey? Why should I register early for the MBA Alumni Survey?
We highly recommend that schools register early to participate for the following reasons:
1. Register now so you don’t forget later
We recognize that you have many tasks on your plate at any given moment. Registering now takes one more item off your list and puts the onus on us to remind you to administer the survey. We will follow-up you to remind you to administer your survey based on your anticipated survey fielding start date entered in the registration form.
2. Don’t miss out on optimal timing
Often, the programs that receive the lowest response rates are those that forget to administer the survey during an optimal time. Registering early ensures that the optimal timing is in our project calendar so we can prepare your survey to launch at the best time for your students.
3. Stop receiving reminders to register
Once you register, we will no longer send you email reminders or place you on our call list to remind you to register (for legacy clients). We will follow-up with all programs that are registered to remind you to administer your survey based on your anticipated survey fielding start date entered in the registration form.
4. Automated reminder for EMBA Student Entry and Student Exit Surveys
Due to the automation that we have built into the school portals that we host for Executive MBA Council members, a built-in reminder mechanism will follow-up to remind you to administer the survey to your students based on the estimated launch date you enter into the registration form (this is automated for EMBA Student Entry and Exit surveys).
5. Expand the number of peer programs for benchmarking
By registering early, our team can focus on encouraging new programs to participate. Additionally, if you alert us of specific peer programs to whom you wish to compare, we will focus our efforts on motivating them to participate with incentives as we will want to improve the value of the information we can provide your school.
6. Custom questions need additional time to prepare
We typically need 3 weeks advance notice for custom questions so these questions can be designed and tested for quality assurance before launching your survey. Programs desiring custom questions need to register early so we have time to work with you to craft actionable questions in time to launch your survey at an optimal time for your students.
