The University of Michigan College of Literature, Science and the Arts asked Power Marketing Research to help develop a name for a new academic program. The program, focusing on quantitative/computational social sciences, needed a name that would appeal to both students and potential employers. We worked with the internal team to develop draft name concepts and then crafted a series of survey questions for employers to test the concepts. PMR then designed a discussion guide and moderated a focus group with students to discover which names would appeal to them. Our comprehensive report provided detailed results and recommendations.

National Heritage Academies

Student Decision-Making Research


The National Heritage Academies were interested in hearing from their students about choices related to high school. Power Marketing Research conducted a series of eight focus groups with youth in 7th and 8th grades in Canton, Plymouth and Ypsilanti to gather data. The information helped National Heritage Academies with positioning and marketing efforts in the future.
