Improving the Higher Education Enrollment Process

EAB is using artificial intelligence to match students with the right institutions.

EAB’s Pipeline Analytics, a custom predictive analytics engine, helps education leaders identify enrollment risks and opportunities in real time. By applying artificial intelligence and machine learning to data from over a billion annual student interactions, Pipeline Analytics can help determine how likely individual students are to apply, accept, and attend institutions.

Machine learning can make use of a school’s millions of student records in a cost-efficient way.
