The GRE® Search Service, an Internet-based student recruitment tool that allows graduate institutions to identify potential graduate and business school candidates, is expanding globally, officials with Educational Testing Service (ETS) and Hobsons U.S. announced today.
"With graduate student recruitment becoming globally competitive, this online service is an essential tool that helps graduate and business schools be very strategic in their recruitment and outreach efforts," says David G. Payne, VP and COO for College and Graduate Programs at ETS. "We have been working to increase the flexibility and usefulness of the GRE Search Service and are very pleased to be able to offer the service to institutions around the world."
Becoming a GRE Search Service user enables graduate and business programs to draw comprehensive information from a diverse candidate pool of more than 400,000 prospective students from more than 200 countries, while generating candidate mailing lists based upon the institution's preferred criteria.
"The graduate admissions community spoke and we responded," says Craig Heldman, CEO, Hobsons.
