A workshop from the 2017 Utrecht Conference on engaging and attracting millennials seeking an educational experience beyond the degree, led by Arlene Tan, Associate Director, Strategic Communications of the Office of Corporate Relations, National University of Singapore (NUS).

What does it mean for the University’s branding and reputation when stories of successful young alumni are used in an admissions publicity campaign to ignite coffee conversations amongst students and their influencers?

Using an amalgamation of platforms, including social media (Facebook and Instagram), online profile stories and both print and outdoor publicity, NUS built a strong, student-facing campaign with the aim of highlighting the successes experienced by alumni as a result of an NUS education. In this session, Arlene Tan, Associate Director Strategic Communications, Office for Corporate Relations, led a discussion on NUS’ approach to the campaign and shared some insights and ideas on how to engage millennials wanting an education that is just beyond degrees.
