  •  Yu-Chuan Chen    


The dynamic changes in higher education observed over the last 20 years have transformed the educational market. The potential value of promoting student satisfaction and loyalty in higher education has become a significant issue. This study investigates the directions and strengths of the relationships among marketing strategies, student satisfaction, and loyalty in Taiwanese higher education. Structural equation models were used to validate the measure and test the proposed relationships. The study tested two hypotheses: marketing strategies are positively related to student satisfaction (H1), and student satisfaction is positively related to student loyalty (H3). These findings indicate that student satisfaction is a key intermediate variable for marketing strategies and student loyalty. This study’s results provide several important implications for managers in higher education.
