Increased competition in the workforce has made education and technical training increasingly necessary. To help their children get a leg up, parents are investing more in their educational development than ever before. From companies that offer preschoolers a head start to tutoring services that help high-schoolers boost SAT scores, organizations are earning high marks for supplementing the traditional education system. Meanwhile, competition in the global job market is making new programs, training and models of instruction essential in order for students to earn gainful employment after graduation. But pressures of budget deficits due to sudden declines in endowment values, limits on tuition increases and deep cuts in education funding are placing core academic missions of teaching, research and outreach at risk.

A smart investment.

  • “We needed to increase undergrad enrollment, solidify our brand and update our fragmented media. Burkhart listened to our story, learned how we do things, and embraced our desire to reach new prospective students. They used their expertise to showcase our specific strengths and they helped us surpass our goals. We interviewed a number of agencies and found their cutting edge ideas, media savviness and positive attitude to be the perfect choice for our needs.”
