LinkedIn announced the launch of University Pages, the first product tailored for higher education. University Pages will enable higher education institutions to build a brand and community on LinkedIn and directly engage with prospective and current students, alumni and parents.
Through the University Pages students and parents, will have ready access to insights from the career outcomes of millions of professionals on LinkedIn. They will also be able to leverage the valuable tools to get a head start on building their professional network and be empowered to make informed choices about their campus life to career.
India’s premier management institute – Indian Institute of Management – Ahmedabad will be the first school in India to own a page on the LinkedIn university pages. As part of this rollout, LinkedIn will now also be available to members who are 13 years of age and older.
“University Pages are a great place to get regular updates about campus news and activities from the schools themselves, to ask questions, and engage with both the campus community and alumni of schools. Explore the careers of graduates to see which schools will get you to your goal. Connect with students or alumni for their perspectives on the school,” said Christina Allen, Director, Product Management at LinkedIn.
