The Carnegie Story

One of the Leaders in Integrated Marketing and Enrollment Solutions for Education

Since the launch of our flagship publication Private Colleges & Universities in 1985, Carnegie Communications has been at the forefront in developing response-driven communication, recruitment solutions, and marketing services. With access to more college-bound students than any other company, we reach the audience you are seeking. Our top performing recruitment and lead generation services and cutting-edge digital marketing team combine to deliver customized solutions for our clients.

In 1995, Carnegie was one of the first educational marketing companies to enter the digital space when we launched With the creation of Carnegie's research, creative, and consulting agency in 1996, we broadened our scope of services and began working with public institutions. Over the years we've diversified by publishing many unique niche magazines and guide books, including some that reach all over the world. In the three decades that we've served the education market, millions of students have selected their college using our publications; that has always been our mission—helping students select the right college and helping colleges find the right students.

Carnegie continued to grow through the acquisitions of Wintergreen Orchard House, Porter Sargent Handbooks, Careers & Colleges magazine, and more recently through organic growth represented by our CollegeXpress Lead Service and the Digital Services division. Integrated marketing—successfully combining traditional media with digital—is our mantra. We partner with over 500 colleges and universities annually and are committed to providing the highest quality service. From its beginning, Carnegie has set the standard for educational marketing and continues today to lead the industry.
