Corporate Partners

The NSSI is very fortunate to have corporate partners who generously support the activities of our sales program at three different levels. Each level has significant benefits, outlined in the chart.


Managing Partner

Companies that donate $15,000 annually are considered a corporate partner at the Managing Partner Level.

Managing partners are at the highest corporate level, and therefore receive all the benefits as a Partner or Associate plus the sponsorship of one role-play room in the NSSI to include company sign and wall mural (two-year commitment). A key benefit to joining at the Managing Partner Level is the sponsorship of one role-play room. Throughout the semester, the National Strategic Selling Institute (NSSI) hosts sales competitions for students in the role-play rooms. With the sponsorship, students will see the company's promotional material in the role-play room and this will increase the company's brand awareness and recognition.

Companies currently at the Managing Partner Level are:


Partner

Companies that donate $10,000 annually are considered as corporate partner at the Partner Level.

Partners are at the middle corporate partner level, and receive all the benefits of a Managing Partner except the sponsorship of one role-play room in the NSSI to include a company sign and wall mural (two-year commitment). The main benefit of joining at the Partner Level is the classroom guest speaking appearances, where companies have the opportunity to speak to 200 plus students per semester. This allows companies to educate students on a topic of interest, and get more contact hours with students.

Companies currently at the Partner Level are:


Associate 

Companies that donate $5,000 annually are considered a corporate partner at the Associate Level.

Associates are the entry level of the corporate partner program, and therefore receive the following benefits: promoting your company on all NSSI marketing materials, website at all NSSI Events and in the NSSI Suite; Membership on the NSSI Advisory Board; dedicated student Sale Ambassador to serve as NSSI liaison; inviation to all NSSI events and activities (to include, but not limited to: Fall Sales Week, Spring Sales Week, Benefit Auction). The main benefit to joining at the Associate Level is an invitation to all NSSI events and activities, including the Fall and Spring Sales Weeks. This allows companies to participate in the Career Fair, which is a great opportunity for companies to find the most talented sales students for internships and full-time opportunities.

Companies currently at the Associate Level are:
