Jess Waldschmidt

Market Research Manager

Phone: 541-737-0591


I most recently joined Oregon State University in November 2020 after holding a similar position with Ecampus from 2017 to 2019. As a market research manager, I design or conduct various types of research on people, programs and jobs. More specifically, I enable OSU Ecampus to 1) gain insight on current and prospective adult learner attitudes and behaviors as they relate to online education, 2) analyze the performance of college/university degree programs in the U.S. and the schools that offer them, and 3) identify employment projections and in-demand skills sought by top industry employers. My goal in providing these insights is to help OSU Ecampus remain a national leader in online education by ensuring our distinct portfolio of high-quality offerings are acutely aligned to the needs of our students.
