Brand Naming Trends Of The Education Institutions

  • Use Founders Name


It is common to see that most of the universities or educational institutes are being named by the founder’s name. Even you can name your educational institute or university with your name. But in the process of analyzing the naming methods, our branding experts found that only popular characters in the world had named the educational business in their own name to build the brand of an educational institute through personal branding. New entrepreneurs like you naming the educational business in your name is not recommended and this naming method is only suitable for both primary and secondary educational institutes and universities.

Examples -:

“The Johns Hopkins University” founder  “Johns Hopkins

“McGill University” founder “James McGill”

“King Saud University” founder “King Saud bin Abdulaziz”

“Eberhard Karls University” founder “ Eberhard V”

“Anglia Ruskin University,” founder “John Ruskin

Audrey Cohen College” founder “Audrey Cohen


  • Use The Geographical Locational Name


Unlike other businesses, the education industry has a different scope. In the field of education mostly the physical presence of the student matters. So most of the universities and institutes are named based on the geographical location. As there are not many popular universities in the educational field before the internet era most of the universities named based on the location. So you can name your educational business based on the location it’s located only if there are very few competitors.

Examples -:

“Stanford University” location “Stanford, California”

“The University of Oxford” location “Oxford, Oxfordshire, England”

“The University of Cambridge” location “Cambridge, United Kingdom”

“The University of Hong Kong “ location “Hong Kong”

“The University of Toronto” location “Toronto, Ontario, Canada”

“University of California” location “Berkeley, California”


  • Express What Your Educational Business Do


You can name your educational business according to what you do. You may start an educational institute, university, or any business related to the educational industry.


“Tokyo Medical and Dental University”

“Brighton and Sussex Medical School”

Medical University of Vienna

“Massachusetts Institute of Technology”

Georgia Institute of Technology”

“Delft University of Technology”

“ Royal College of Art”


  • Use A Unique Name


This method became popular after the internet era. Due to the covid situation, almost all the educational programs are happening via the internet. So this situation made the users understand how important the online presence of any business is. So having a unique name in the educational business will help you grow in the industry and stand out from competitors.

Examples -:





.edu or .com or the country level domain extension?

As mentioned above, education is a totally different field in the business industry. When it comes to the domain extension for your educational business both .edu and .com are best. We can not come to a conclusion as one domain extension is best. Both are recommended but if your business is based on the internet then .com is better than the .edu because it will help rank your site and it is SEO friendly. Some of the educational institutions use the country code to show their country identity. The country-level domain extension was used by only the universities that formed before the internet era and those universities that are almost popular worldwide.

  • .edu

.edu was introduced in 1985. It is specialized for all the education-related business. Most of the educational institutes, universities are using the .edu domain extension.

  • Using the country level domain extension

This method is used by the most popular universities in the world which formed before the internet era. These universities used the country domain extension because by the time of forming those universities only a few competitors like 2-3 were available in the field.

  • .com

.com was also introduced in 1985 on the same date that the .edu was introduced. .com is suitable for all types of businesses including an educational business that is mainly based on the internet.

With careful analysis, our branding experts recommend .com for those educational businesses who are based on the internet and it is ok to use .edu or country code for other educational businesses which are mainly based on the physical presence of students.

What Is The Best Domain Extension For Educational Institutions?

There are many domain extensions that have been introduced for educational institutions. Such as .academy, .coach, .college, .degree, .education, .institute, .MBA, .report, .school, .schule, .science, .shiksha, .support, .training, .university. Although there are so many domain extensions available for educational institutional websites, most of the top educational institutions/ companies are using the .com domain extension as there are so many benefits of using .com domain name. 

Our brand name consultants recommend .com domain extension for your educational institutions.
