The University awarded a contract for marketing to international students to Hobsons, Cincinnati, OH, for $30,000.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the media is for advertising. vendor Hobsons USA Education Guides, and International Naviance are only available to potential students through the Hobsons company. They have copyrighted print materials that are distributed freely to students around the world, and proprietary software through which students can find us even if they have never heard of ISU. Through these services, international students who choose to study in the United States in particular academic disciplines can identify ISU as a prospective institution. Because so many U.S. institutions partner with Hobsons, this is an ideal resource for international students to quickly gain access to information about multiple institutions throughout the United States. It is essential for ISU to be represented among this group of institutions in order to gain the attention and interest of prospective international students. Additionally, Hobsons will send us qualified leads from prospective students who are seriously interested and who are a good match for ISU based upon our academic programs and admission requirements.
