Weightlist Episode 2 – The End of Enrollment Theory?

How do we understand complex enrollment problems in the age of the petabyte? Thom and Brad discuss what enrollment management could learn from Big Data and what it means for conventional enrollment theory. Of course, along the way there’s always beer, smoking jackets, and how Klingon gets translated to Hindu.
