Without Having To ‘Dig Through Data’ To Find What’s Working And What Isn’t”

From the desk of:

Most graduate program owners would like to think that, with all of the data available for free online, they could handle creating, running, and growing a program all on their own…

But the truth is, the game is kind of rigged against you. In fact, you might be realizing that this is much harder than you originally thought…

Does any of this resonate with you:

  • You feel you’ve been set up to fail by the campus bureaucracy.
  • You’ve done “all the research” and you know you have good ideas… but when decision time comes, you don’t have ANY authority to make things happen.
  • You’re upset that program rankings drive enrollments rather than learning or skill and knowledge development.
  • You’re lacking access to the data (and actionable advice) you need to see real and lasting change in your program.
  • You’re discouraged because you know how important recruiting new students is to long-term success, but you need more help to make it happen.

Let me assure you… I know EXACTLY what you are facing. I HAVE been there before, and I DO know the way out.

In fact, not much has changed…

These are precisely the challenges I faced and the questions I had when I was in your shoes.

Now I’m going to ask you to be extremely honest with yourself. Ok?

This program is more than just a job for you. It’s something you are passionate about. Really, it’s “your baby”!

Does that sound right?

And without data, direction, or the support of your administrators, it can be downright difficult (and even offensive!) when no one seems to hear or address the concerns you’re voicing…

That is exactly how it was for me, too! I was drafted into the job and had to figure everything out on my own.

That’s why, today, I do the work I am doing… and why I’m “incredibly passionate” about it…

I GET feeling lost and confused.

When I retired from managing GME programs, I had two choices:

  • I could let my peers experience the “same old” tiresome issues as I did, enjoy a nice retirement, and never think about Graduate Program Management again…
  • OR — I could take what I learned and dedicate the next 10 years of my life to helping folks just like you and me who need support, direction, and data to drive their decisions and build successful programs.

That’s exactly what I did!

Now YOU have a few choices to make!

You could do nothing.

But you know something needs to change, right?!

…That doesn’t seem like the right move; it’s probably the worst thing you can do!

You could take the “cheap” route.

I provide a TON of complimentary resources in my Weekly Intelligence Briefing. And I put a ton of work into that to HELP make you successful…

But you can only go so far with that.

It’s a start, for sure!

…But if you are here, you might already be getting that information… is that alone getting you where you need to go?

If so, that’s great!

If not, you might go deeper, getting a long-term interpretive approach to what you should do each quarter to grow your program…

You could do it yourself. 

That is true; you absolutely could! However, each week I take about 10 hours to put together the Weekly Intelligence Briefing…

…and then almost 50 hours(!!) to put together my Quarterly Trends Report and webinars that help you develop a successful program based on the latest data and trends.

Wouldn’t it make more sense to spend that time developing your own program?

Is data curation and aggregation really the best use of your time… and then still not knowing “what to do” with the data…?

Here’s the real question:

“If you had all the data at your fingertips, and MY DIRECT HELP to answer your most pressing questions… do you think you could fast-track the growth of your program?”

Absolutely you could!

With that, I want to extend you a warm invitation to become an MBA News Digest’s Quarterly Trends Report (QTR) subscriber today. 

The QTR is a brand new, “little known” offering that will give your program that “competitive edge” you are missing…

Remember how we decided together that you had more important things to do than curate, aggregate, and interpret data for growing your own program?

Well, I have done all the hard work for you! 

The Quarterly Trends Report results from standardizing the painstaking process of regularly analyzing and interpreting Graduate Program Management and Curriculum trends and giving actionable steps to take based on my findings.

What used to take me almost 700 hours each year will take you EXACTLY ‘ZERO’ hours when you join the MBA News Digest as Quarterly Trends Report subscriber!

It’s almost like “a magic bullet”…

Every quarter, you’ll get only the most relevant trending data and content, complete with an easy-to-digest analysis and specific steps for YOU to implement in YOUR program … immediately!

Not to mention, you’ll get direct access to me via a “private quarterly webinar” where you can ask questions specific to your program during the Q&A and get immediate feedback with actionable advice to finally get your program moving in the right direction.

Not only is the QTR a “no-brainer” for you to grow your program, but I will offer something extremely valuable — something that isn’t for sale anywhere else…

BONUS: If you sign up by 11:59 p.m. EST, Friday, August 5th, 2022, your first quarter will come complete with four “additional hours” of live Zoom coaching calls with me to get your use of the QTR started out on the right foot.

IMPORTANT: This bonus is a one time offer that you cannot “just buy” and I don’t even know if I will ever offer it again.

So today, you get…

  • Access to my Quarterly Trends Report: a quarterly “insider’s track” to help you fast-track the growth of your graduate program (a $4,997 value)
  • A “quarterly private webinar” for you to get coaching DIRECTLY FROM ME on the key areas of your program that need help NOW (a $1997 Value)
  • My direct guidance as a trusted advisor via 4 hours of Zoom calls during the entire first quarter that you’re a subscriber… (PRICELESS!)

Total Value: $6,995+

Unfortunately, I don’t have time to go over ALL the benefits right now…

“But if all this program did was save you 100’s of hours each year (while giving you access to me and my expertise while you’re planning your program each quarter), allowing you to recruit more students and design a program to thrill your administration with…would it be worth at least $6,995?”


Of course, I will not charge you $6,995 or anything close to that.

You can have everything I’ve shared with you for just under $300 per year! Click “Get Access Now” below get started today.

**Today’s price: $297/year**
