About TrendTopper MediaBuzz
GLM created the TrendTopper MediaBuzz analysis as a way of seeing the schools through the eyes of the world at large. In the rapidly changing communications and media environment of the early 21st Century, you cannot rely on telephone surveys, at-home interviews, newspaper clippings or television mentions in order to measure the value of a brand.  Today the methodology must encompass the Twitters and YouTubes of the world as well as the tens of millions of blogs, the billions of web pages, as well as the top global print and electronic media.
.
This enormous sample simply cannot be tampered with because no single institution has the ability to influence, let alone corrupt, data streaming from hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of points of origin.  TrendTopper MediaBuzz utilizes a mathematical model that “normalizes” the data and allows us to make statistically-significant comparisons among the various measurements.  The end result is a non-biased analytical tool that will allow you to gauge the relative values differing institutions are assigned by consumers, as well as measures of how that value changes over time.
.
The Top Colleges and Universities were also ranked by “Media Momentum”, defined as its largest change in Media Buzz from the end of the last survey and the largest change in media citations in the previous nine months.  The study is longitudinal in nature with the latest analysis completed January 8, 2012.
