Overview of project:
The Board of Directors at Post University has asked you to create an integrated
marketing communication (IMC) advertising program for the university. There are 2
reasons for this project:
1. The BoD wants a better understanding the target market(s) they are trying to
2. Your slides will help the marketing and admissions teams at Post determine how
best to promote the Post University brand and continue to grow the university.
Develop a professional PowerPoint presentation (approximately 8 content slides plus
title and reference slides) which includes the following:
1. A title slide with your name, title of assignment and date (1 slide)
2. Introduction explaining the purpose of the slide deck (1 slide)
3. Approximately, how many colleges/universities are there in the US, and how
many active college students are there in the US. (1 slide)

billboards, satellite or terrestrial radio, newspaper, etc.)? (1 slide)
5. Most adult students are in school to earn a degree so they can boost their
lifetime earnings. Generalize the value of a college education by inserting a
chart displaying the lifetime earnings comparison of lifetime high school
earnings versus college education earnings (1 slide)
