Such matching will always happen for any specific Campaigns you have participated in, but could also be done for similar opportunities or Campaigns. So for example, if you partake in an opportunity to study for an MBA at a certain university in the United Kingdom, we may also see if you are a fit for and contact you regarding other study opportunities at the same school, in the United Kingdom, or for other MBAs (including outside of the United Kingdom).
