UCISA Leadership Conference Pre-event Session 

Integrating Predictive Analytics into Graduate Outcomes

Executive lunch included

Tuesday 29 March, 11:15am - 12:15 am BST

Manchester Central Convention Complex

Room: Exchange 2&3


Legacy Career Management solutions are often disconnected, standalone systems focused on operational tasks, providing poor user experience (and hence low student engagement) with limited analytics.

With Student Employability (aka Graduate Outcomes) now a critical measure of success - with a heavy weighting in any university ranking - it is imperative that a Careers Platform not only connect students with employment opportunities, but also enable the university to monitor all interactions and quickly identify where interventions are needed.

Handshake is now providing the networked technology platform for more than 1,400 university partners across the US and UK, combining an excellent student experience (high engagement) with provision of detailed analytics across every part of the hiring process, synchronising these with central university systems.  

As we look to the future, we want to help lead the way in creating analytics tools that can help equip our university partners with what they need to reach students that often fall through the cracks, plan where they need to deploy their resources, and tell the story of their impact.


Innovation like this must be collaborative; we want to incorporate the feedback and perspective of experts who are creating the future of Information Systems in UK Higher Education. This session will be a place for us to:

  • Learn more from the expertise of IT leaders on how you need technology to integrate into your priorities
  • Share more about our vision for predictive analytics as a tool to accomplish EDI goals in graduate outcomes
  • Envision a plan for what IT, Career Services, and technology collaboration needs to look like in the next decade.

Delicious lunch included.
