The new partnership will further enable the college to advance its mission to prepare students in a wide variety of management specialties and to serve a range of industries.

“The college and NCH Corporation had been working closely together for many years prior this agreement,” said Gupta College of Business Dean Brett J. L. Landry. “Formalizing this partnership only ensures the continued growth of our ongoing friendship, as well as our dedication to providing them with the highest-quality graduate-level education for their employees."

Through the partnership, all NCH Corporation employees and their dependents will be eligible for tuition benefits when enrolling at the University of Dallas. The benefits can be applied to undergraduate, graduate and continuing education in the Gupta College of Business’ Center for Executive Education.

“Our corporation has been continually impressed by the University of Dallas for many years,” said Mike McCall, director of labor relations at NCH Corporation. “From the university’s many students who have joined our company after graduation, to our current associates who have gone back to school to receive their graduate degrees, the University of Dallas has become an essential contributing partner to ‘our most valuable assets, our people.’”

NCH joins other University of Dallas partners, including Michaels, Kroger and CHRISTUS Health.

“NCH and UD have a long history of excellent rapport, and this agreement will further the legacy of our relationship,” said University of Dallas Director of Corporate Relations and Partnerships Halley Netsch. “We're honored to support NCH employees pursuing higher education."
