Course Match is an algorithm that optimizes every course registration for fairness and efficiency.

This lets you focus on priorities like student outcomes and advising.

It’s a direct application of market design — the field of economics that was awarded the Nobel Prize in 2012.

Breakthrough research, interdisciplinary collaboration

The Course Match algorithm uses a market mechanism to fairly and efficiently distribute schedules:

  • Students rank classes
  • The algorithm computes demand for each class based on the rankings
  • Course Match then spends virtual budgets to give every student the best schedule they can afford

Leading scholars from economics, computer science, and operations research contribute to the design, testing, and validation of Course Match.
