Strategic Partner Program

The Strategic Partner Program is the NDSCS Premier Business program to meet workforce needs in North Dakota and the Red River Valley. This is the highest level of partnership participation and is designed for businesses looking to work with administration, faculty and staff, and in turn, gain exposure to prospective students.

This program has direct involvement in curriculum development, recruitment and faculty training to the level of vendor certification and compliance. Through this partnership, businesses gain significant brand exposure through logo and signage placement, news releases, interactive content and alumni newsletter articles. A Strategic Partner commits to provide academic program correspondence, materials, supplies, personnel, equipment and a significant annual financial investment.
