Marketing Services

Promoting online courses requires a unique skillset. It involves an understanding of marketing, communication and recruitment. The MSU Online staff is adept at all three and at knowing the proper mix to make your course stand out. Our services are free to all academic units and colleges involved in Campus 5 delivery.

Marketing Consultation

Where to start? How do you recruit students or increase program awareness? There’s a lot to consider when your students are out in cyberworld instead of walking the halls of your building. Our marketing consultants can help you look at:

  • Enrollment management
  •  Event promotion
  • New class promotion
  • New program or certificate offerings
  • Tracking your marketing and recruitment return on investment


Need help finding prospective students? Recruitment is not a cookie cutter process. Each program is unique and appeals to students of varied interests and talents. Let us brainstorm with you to find your ideal students and create a strategy to reach them. Contact your program coordinator today to set up a visit.

We can help you select images, colors and themes while staying within the MSU Visual Identity Standards. The avenues for communication are broad – web banners, social media posts, brochures, print ads, billboards. We can help you design a plan that works best for your individual course and the students you seek to recruit.
