How Budapest Metropolitan University tripled enrollments in 3 years

Jan 4, 2019 | Case studies

Budapest Metropolitan University is one of DreamApply’s oldest clients, becoming DreamApply’s first Central European partner in 2014. Budapest Metropolitan University has become one of the most international universities in Hungary in the past five years.

How were things done before DreamApply?
We used to work with Excel files and a lot of papers. To make a comparison, adopting DreamApply has been like coming from the middle ages to the 21st century.

Results from DreamApply
It is important for us that feedback from applicants is positive and they are delighted with a modern, up-to-date application system.

In addition to students’ satisfaction, it is essential that the training of new colleagues to adopt the system is easy as the system is user-friendly – new staff members can handle the system in just a couple of days.

From an applications management perspective, we can track all our applicants’ journeys, starting from understanding where they are coming from (e.g. agents or other marketing channels), to being able to quickly reject an applicant who has been trying to apply for years without fulfilling the entry qualifications (via their track record).

Furthermore, an essential factor is having a variety of reports available to quickly overview our admissions data to make data-driven decisions for future growth.

Configuration and support
DreamApply Client Happiness Team has always been quick with responses. On average, we get answers in a couple of hours if there are any questions.

Growth numbers
Over the first two implementation years, Budapest Metropolitan University has tripled the number of successful enrollments.

Where do all the applicants go?

Can you guess how many applications it takes to find a new student? The short answer seems to be 5, if your admission tools can only count submitted applications. Or maybe 10 if you have a deeper view into the process. Before we examine why this is the case, a brief...
