Analytics Projects


The Office of Business Intelligence (BI) partners with University stakeholders to identify the analytics to best serve their goals. Below, please find a few of the projects that our team has either recently completed, is currently working on, or has slated for future development.

New Student Melt (Grad Schools)

The version of the "New Student Melt" report currently in the University Analytics system is specific to Seaver Undergraduate programs. The Office of Business Intelligence is opening up the report to include data from the other four schools and their programs. The report tracks new student withdrawals from the point of pre-matriculation (intent-to-enroll/deposit) through the end of the admit term.

Status: Complete

Courses and Registration (for Program/Plan)

The "Courses and Registration" report focuses on enrollment from the perspective of the courses and the divisions/disciplines (or academic organizations) associated with those courses, as well as the students associated with those divisions/disciplines (where applicable). However, not all schools associate students with divisions/disciplines, and it was therefore requested that these schools be able to report on the data from the perspective of students within certain academic programs and plans. New versions of the "Courses and Registration" reports will include the ability to view data by program/plan (in addition to division/discipline/org) as well as the addition of instruction mode and degree type as report filters.

Status: Complete

DEI Scorecard (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion)

The Pepperdine Graziadio Business School (PGBS) is disengaging with their third-party analytics vendor, Hanover, who currently provides a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) scorecard. PGBS is therefore partnering with BI and the Office of Institutional Effectiveness (OIE) to build the analyses in-house. The scorecard will ideally provide various KPIs, including completion, retention, net tuition cost, ethnicity, gender, and many more. The new scorecard/report will be available to all schools.

Cost of Instruction (COI)
