Case Studies

University at Buffalo – SUNY

Joseph Hindrawan, Assoc. VP & Director, International Enrollment Management

“We started using Hotcourses about five years ago to channel student interest and generate inquiries. We have strong brand recognition in most Asian regions, but not much recognition in Latin America. We worked with Hotcourses to target the Latin American market and have successfully seen increased brand recognition and inquiries from that region.”


University of Hartford

Sam Skinner, Director of International Admissions

“It’s hard to find a vendor that is responsive and takes the time to learn about the institution to a point where they can craft a product that fits you well, and I think that Hotcourses has done a great job at doing that. “
