Corporate Partners

The NSSI is very fortunate to have corporate partners who generously support the activities of our sales program at four different levels. Each level has significant benefits which are outlined in our Corporate Partner Program.  

Managing Partner

Companies that donate $20,000 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 at the three lower levels 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:

Senior Partner

Companies that donate $15,000 annually are considered as a corporate partner at the Senior Partner level.

The main benefit of joining at the Senior Partner level is the branded competition, where companies have the opportunity to host their own sales role-play or case competition on campus. This allows companies to interact with students in an interactive setting where students can showcase their sales skills. 

Companies currently at the Senior Partner level are:

Junior Partner

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

The main benefit of joining at the Junior 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 Junior Partner level are:

Associate Partner

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

Associates are the entry-level of the corporate partner program. The main benefit of joining at the Associate Partner 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 Partner level are:
