The use of infographics in marketing seems pretty uncommon among Minnesota’s colleges and universities.
I recently wrote about how the University of St. Thomas was taking the plunge, and Macalester College has dabbled as well (though that didn’t seem to have as much of a marketing bent.)
A spokesman from the University of Minnesota told me it doesn’t really use them for marketing.
The only other ones I’ve found are by Concordia University in St. Paul. Marketing Director Jason DeBoer-Moran sent me a handful that the school has made in the last year. They all seem tied to Concordia’s online programs. The graphic above was carried by The Huffington Post.
The others that Concordia produced are for programs in criminal justice, hospitality management, sports management and radiology.
