Net Promoter Score (NPS) was developed by Fredrick F. Reichheld and others at “Bain & Company”. NPS is an indicator showing the level of consumer loyalty: the higher the NPS score, the higher the consumer’s loyalty. It is claimed that NPS shows higher correlation with the revenue growth of an organization, compared with conventional customer satisfaction indicators. In the United States, it is said that 35% of the Fortune 500 has adopted NPS as their management tool . By checking alumni’s NPS for their alma maters, you can find out their degree of attachment to their alma maters.
