HULT International Business School is a global institution that transforms lives by providing a valuable and enduring education that brings together people, cultures, and ideas from all around the world. Founded in 1964, HULT is now the world's largest graduate business school.
The HULT project includes several solutions, most of which are built in the latest versions of Sitecore. Nemetos worked on the following sites:
The HULT Prize Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to launching the world's next wave of social entrepreneurs. It encourages the world's brightest business minds to compete in teams to solve the planet's biggest challenges with innovative ideas for sustainable start-up enterprises. Annual HULT Prize winners can make their ideas reality with the help of $1million in seed funding.
We developed the HULT Student Application site that allows applicants to apply online for one of HULT’s study programmes. The user can create a profile, complete their online application and submit all supporting materials for their application.
The responsive myHULT feature enables applicants and students to manage their HULT journey online via iPads, mobile or desktop. The students can create a private profile, which is pre-populated from the HULT Salesforce CRM. They can then access all data about their courses, events and other information relating to their time with HULT.
The main focus was to make it really user-friendly. When the student signed up for the myHULT, they had to fill out an eight step sign-up form with all the relevant student information. This helped HULT create the basis for a really strong student portal.
The HULT housing feature is a website offering housing options for students. It shows pricing, offers tours of the student campuses and available apartments. It is a straightforward brochure website, offering accommodation for students.
We chose Nemetos as our solution partner because they had a large, scalable team. Our priority was to speed up our management process, while investing in a solid, future proof system that could integrate with our salesforce CRM. Nemetos offered expertise and support over a 5 year period, until we were able to manage the sites ourselves internally.
HULT achieved their main aims, which were:
At its initial launch, the www.hult.edu site won Sitecore site of the year 2011.
