Top 2020 Higher Ed Marketing Conferences & Courses

This directory of Higher Education Marketing Conferences is constantly updated by Karine Joly, Executive Director at Higher Ed Experts. She has attended personally - and presented - at most of the higher ed conferences featured in this list maintained since 2014.

This annual selection of 2020 higher education marketing conferences and professional certificate online courses is meant to help higher education marketers and digital professionals working in universities, colleges and schools.

So, it makes sense for seasoned higher ed marketers and new comers to the industry to attend conferences or courses with a specific focus on higher education.
