Topic Modeling

Mission Statement Topics

TL:DR Below I use Prismatic’s API to tag the mission statements of approximately 500 colleges in the U.S. in order to evaluate the “focus” of each, which I define as the topics extracted from the API. In addition, I also consider the competitive nature of various schools, commonly referred to as the “Competitor Set”. Out of the gate, I considered more than 1,000 schools for this study. In the end, I only kept institutions with clean data, that is, no missing information across all of the data I collected.
